Situated within the stunning Bowes Museum, Café Bowes offers an idyllic setting for your requirements, be it morning coffee, afternoon teas, a delicious lunch or just a snack.
Head Chef, Davey Babooran, enjoys the benefits of using high quality ingredients supplied by local producers and goes direct to small farm producers such as Carrolls Heritage Potatoes who help create the all time favourite chowder on the menu. All the café's pork and bacon comes from McFarlane Family Butchers and bread is freshly baked by Moody Baker, both of which can be found by taking the short walk from the Museum into the centre of Barnard Castle. The café uses local organic milk and cream, and local game when in season.
Davey and his team bake fresh scones and cakes daily and all meals are made to order, with special dietary requirements catered for where possible.
