Enjoy old-fashioned home baking and hospitality at Heatherslaw Tearoom!
Situated over two floors in the old granary at Heatherslaw Cornmill, this tranquil setting overlooking the River Till is the ideal place to relax and enjoy the range of refreshments offered in this traditional tearoom where simple, good old-fashioned home cooking comes accompanied with a warm Northumbrian welcome.
Snacks, ice cream cones, light lunches and cream teas are all available, and - for those passing through or exploring the area on foot or cycle - ‘food to go’ can be made to order.
Choose from a selection of freshly made sandwiches, homemade soup served with Heatherslaw bread, scones baked fresh on site every morning, a slice of cake like Grandma used to make and more besides!
Families are very welcome (high chairs and baby changing facilities provided) with outside tables and chairs on site as well as a large paddock area above the Mill to picnic in, and a take-out service available for anyone preferring to enjoy refreshments outdoors in the fresh air.
Groups also catered for – please telephone for further information.
Payment by cash or cheque only - no card facilities.
Accessibility: The Tearoom is accessed via 5 stone steps down to the main door, with handrails to both sides, and 10 stone steps up to the seating area, with wooden handrail to one side. For less able-bodied visitors the full menu can be served at tables in the Visitor Centre opposite - just ask a member of staff for assistance. Car parking for the Tearoom is situated over the bridge adjacent to the B6354 and opposite Heatherslaw Railway. The walk from the car park to the Tearoom is about 200 yards with a slight incline from car park to bridge then a level surface. For those with mobility problems there is disabled car parking outside the Visitor Centre, accessed from the B6353 at the T-junction which displays a 'No Through Road' sign. Turn into this road and follow it for about a mile - you will come to the Heatherslaw Mill site where you will see signs for disabled parking. If in doubt please telephone in advance for advice.
