RSPB Old Moor Café
At the RSPB’s 250-acre nature reserve, butterflies, bees, ducks, geese and swans can be spotted in and around the lakes, grasslands, reed beds and open water. After watching the wildlife, many call into the café for a drink and bite to eat. Housed in a farm building dating back to the 1700s, the welcoming café is complete with oak beams and views across the stunning landscape. Whether sampling a hearty homemade soup or beef cobbler after a wintery ramble, or fresh summer salad on the balcony, the café has it all. The wonderful team creates the specials menu every day using the best local produce, and a selection of sweet treats and Fairtrade coffee provide the perfect end to a delicious home-cooked meal. It’s worth visiting on a Sunday as a traditional roast tops off a great day spent with the family, although no matter what day or time of year you stop by, Old Moor nature reserve is a great day out for all.
