The Woodhorn Cafe offers a selection of freshly prepared snacks, light meals and cakes using the best local ingredients where we can.
The cafe is a contemporary space set in the heart of the historic pit yard (just separated by a wall of glass). It features a specially commissioned artwork “The Making of a Man” by artist Nina Wakbayashi, capturing a young lad’s first shift underground in the Japanese manga cartoon style.
As you would expect, there’s a range of teas, coffees and soft drinks available to accompany home made scones, cakes and sandwiches (including the local favourite, ham and pease pudding). If it’s hot food you are after, then try a toasted sandwich or baked potato available with a variety of fillings, or some of our delicious home-made soup and a crusty roll.
We have picnic boxes with sandwiches, drinks and fresh fruit for children and meal deals are available too.
Why not treat yourself and finish off with some gorgeous Doddington Dairy ice-cream made in the heart of Northumberland.
Groups are always welcome at Woodhorn. If you just want to pop in to the café that’s fine, but if you can let us know you are coming, we can have the kettle on and be prepared. Alternatively if you would like your group to sit down together, we can offer a number of options from soup and sandwiches to the full works.
The café opens at 10.30am and it closes its doors 30 minutes before the site closes (3.30pm in winter and 4.30pm in summer).
