Meadowside Café & Bar

Situated in the cobbled village of Dent in Dentdale, Meadowside is the perfect mix of contemporary café bar and traditional home-cooked fare with an added modern twist

Relax outside in the sunshine with a cappuccino or a glass of wine for Dales-style café culture and people watching down 'The Laning', or if the weather's not so kind you'll find a cosy spot by our wood-burning stove to enjoy a freshly brewed cup of tea or hot chocolate and watch the ever-changing views of Rise Hill and the Dentdale landscape.


Traditional Homemade Fare

At Meadowside we pride ourselves on quality, with almost everything homemade. From our gluten free soup of the day with crusty bread, to our home-cooked maple ham, not forgetting our fabulous range of delicious home-baked cakes, muffins, traybakes, and sweet & savory scones served with homemade butter - always available with a pot of Yorkshire tea or our celebrated fresh 'bean to cup' coffee.

Our superb, freshly cooked 'Full English' and 'Full Vegetarian' breakfasts start the day off well for campers, walkers and day-trippers alike. At lunchtimes we offer full hearty meals as well as snacks and light bites - from soups served with a wedge of sourdough, sandwiches, toasties and homemade dirty fries to Wensleydale rarebit, Cumberland ring and egg buttie with homemade sun-dried tomato chutney &  hand battered fish finger sandwich with homemade tartar sauce and mushy peas but not forgetting our selection of daily specials.

Please check our menu tab for our latest menus   


We use only the finest local ingredients. The local butcher, William Peat of Sedbergh, supplies all our meat with the majority sourced from Cumbria and the surrounding area. Fruit and vegetables are delivered daily from our local greengrocer, honey is sourced from Dentdale and very happy free range eggs from our local farmer here in Dent, even our butter served with the scones is homemade using cream sourced from the dales.  Not forgetting our drinks range with craft Ales from the local Dent brewery, Lager brewed in Kirkby Lonsdale, Spirits from Yorkshire dales distillery & our unique Yorkshire scrumpy
