Welcome to Herdwicks Coniston

Herdwicks café and bistro is a family run business, headed up by Gemma and Spencer Metcalfe in partnership with Jon Watson and his wife Jo McGrath.

Gemma makes sure everything runs smoothly for our customers while in the kitchen head chef Spencer works his magic on the high quality beef and herdwick lamb sourced directly from Jon's farm - Yew Tree Farm, Coniston. Jo McGrath is a well known local artist and her work can be seen gracing the walls of the cafe.

Together this team have created Herdwicks- a perfect place to enjoy high quality food in a beautiful setting.
