David Mellor Design Museum Café
Situated in one of the most beautiful parts of the Peak District National Park, the David Mellor Design Museum Café is a truly unique environment in which to relax and enjoy delicious homemade food. A key figure in British design, David Mellor was widely known as ‘the cutlery king’. The café is situated on the same site as the Design Museum, Country Shop and award-winning Cutlery Factory, which visitors are invited to view on free weekend guided tours. Sit amongst historic examples of Mellor’s work, including working sets of his traffic lights, or enjoy the large outdoor seating area and soak up the peaceful woodland setting.
The café itself serves a traditional British lunch menu with great contemporary flair. You’ll find a freshly prepared sandwich selection, classic cream teas, hearty hot lunches, generous salads and tasty platters available for good measure. Everything is made in-house with, fresh local produce. The food selection has been developed with the design aesthetic of David Mellor in mind and what better way to sample the food than with the very dinnerware the company is famous for. Visitors can relax in the café, learn about the British design legend, and maybe even treat friends and family to a gift from the shop, which contains a truly exceptional selection of kitchenware.
