Meadowside Café & Bar


Meadowside cafe is 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 Dentdale honey & mustard ham, not forgetting our

fabulous range of delicious home-baked cakes, muffins, tarts & eclairs, and sweet & savory scones served

with homemade butter - always available with a pot of Yorkshire tea or our celebrated fresh 'bean to cup'


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, sandwiches, toasties and homemade dirty fries to Rarebit tart, Cumberland ring egg in the middle buttie with homemade tomato chutney &  hand battered cod fish finger sandwich with homemade tartar sauce and minted mushy peas as well as a selection of daily specials.

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 still or sparkling scrumpy
