SAVOUR THE DEPTHS OF FLAVOUR AT THE LAMPROOM CAFÉ

The Lamproom Café sits above ground as the only marker for the adventure taking place below. The Cafe will be serving delicious cakes and snacks along with teas and all your favourite coffees. Our café is another delightful discovery hidden amongst the trees of the Forest.

AS SEEN ON SCREEN

A location this unique naturally provides extraordinary magic and wonder, which is why over the years we’ve played host to the filming of numerous programs, including Willow, The Change, Dr Who, His Dark Materials, Cursed, Britannia and many others.
