Food and Drink

The decadent excess of Cavalier days may be long gone, but the Bolsover Café still serves up a great range of delicious food. There’s a choice of hot meals, sandwiches, soups, and salads, and there are plenty of homemade cakes, bakes and biscuits if you fancy something sweeter.

Cake at Bolsover Castle

Our menu showcases the best of British produce. All our food comes from the UK, and we use local suppliers wherever possible.

Our specials change with the seasons, so that means we use strawberries in summer puddings, blackberries and apples in autumn crumbles and potatoes and leeks in warming winter soups. And we go back in time for inspiration - be sure to taste our Bolsover Cake, baked to an historical recipe.
A vegetarian choice is available and we can make sandwiches to order. Our soup is always vegetarian and gluten-free, and you'll find gluten-free cakes and salads too. Our juices and our coffee is Fair Trade.

There are plenty of seats inside and outside, and we're located right next to the new play area, making it the perfect place to relax while your children let off some steam.

Opening Times

The café is open on all the days that the castle is open. See opening times.
