We're absolutely delighted to have won 2022 Cafe of the Year award, fantastic recognition for our hardworking staff who have set and maintained such high standards of food and service. Cumbria has some amazing foodie places so to win against such competition is a huge accolade, and especially after all the difficulties the last couple of years has thrown up.  
 Cafe of the year


We were very excited to announce the appointment of our new Head Chef Gerald van der Walt, who joined 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. 
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.

Free Wi-Fi available, please ask for the password.
