Lanercost Tea Room


Abbey Farm,


Adjacent to 12th century Lanercost Priory and with the World Heritage site of Hadrian's Wall less than half a mile away there's plenty to do locally. In the converted outbuildings to the original Abbey Farm is a fabulous Tea Room , Gift Shop and Hadrian's Wall Visitor Information Centre which makes it an ideal start to your journey to explore the World Heritage Site, only 2 miles from the small market town of Brampton, and a short drive from the city of Carlisle with easy access to the M6.

Everything is homemade and freshly prepared to order using quality local produce. The home baked selection of cakes are a speciality from the classic Coffee & Walnut, Lemon Drizzle or simply the scones , baked fresh every day without fail! Serving 'proper chips', Cumberland Sausage (of course!), Lanercost has a great reputation for favourites such as the 'Chicken in a Basket' and homemade Burgers.
