Winding House Cafe

Opening Times: 10.30am - 3.30pm October - March / 4.30pm April - September 

The Winding House Café offers a selection of freshly prepared snacks, light meals and scrumptious cakes using great local suppliers and the best Northumbrian ingredients.

It's a contemporary space set in the heart of the historic pit yard (just separated by a wall of glass) and 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.


Enjoy a cup of delicious Ringtons Tea, coffee or perhaps a refreshing rose lemonade from Fentimans with your home made scones, cakes and sandwiches (including the local favourite, ham and pease pudding). Try a toasted sandwich or baked potato, or some of our own delicious home-made soup and a roll from Trotters Family Bakers. Picnic boxes are available for the younger generation (sandwich, drink and fresh fruit).
Why not treat yourself and finish off with some gorgeous Doddington Dairy ice-cream made in the heart of Northumberland.

Find out more about all of our fantastic local suppliers at the bottom of the page.

Group Visits

Groups are always welcome at Woodhorn, but if you can, please let us know you are coming and we can have the kettle on and be prepared. 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. Just get in touch.
