Sept 9th 2021 - We are very excited to announce the appointment of our new Head Chef Gerald van der Walt, joining us to head the team in Harry's Cafe in October 2021. 
Gerald has a very fine reputation, having worked in many notable restaurants in the UK and his native South Africa, most recently launching and developing the Gaddum at Brockhole, so we are really looking forward to sharing the exciting plans for food at Yew Tree Barn. In March 2022 Gerald was joined by promising young chef Sean Conroy.




Harry's was established in 2012 and has been continually growing and improving. We outgrew our original space after a couple of years and have had several refurbishments and the latest expansion (February 2022) into the Garden room has created a wonderful space for dining. We've retained the same atmosphere and eclectic style.
 We have established an excellent team of staff and devised a great menu, along with a good selection of wines and beers. 
All our supplies are from local producers (we aim to keep our food miles as low as possible)  Cornvale foods, More Artisan Bakery, Cartmel Valley Game, EWGA, Lakes Speciality Foods, Kendal Fish & Game, Woodbine Dairies, and several local breweries. Please just ask if you have any allergies or special dietary requirements. We always have gluten free choices, along with dairy free dishes, soya milk etc.
 Dogs are welcome too. Please pop in and see us, we're delighted with the response from our customers who've left some excellent reviews on Tripadvisor too! 
We welcome all feedback, and if there is anything you’re not completely satisfied with please let us know straight away so that we can put it right for you.
