Whether you are looking for a full english breakfast, a sandwich, a light rustic lunch, wood fired pizza or an afternoon tea, Cross Lanes is the place to eat. The café-restaurant is situated beneath our glazed atrium providing a real spacious relaxing environment overlooking the Teesdale countryside. A feature of our café is the traditional wood fired oven which is used to make pizzas, flatbreads, roast meat & vegetables.

Organic Kitchen Menu which runs alongside our daily specials
We have a team of girls pulling all the stops out in our organic kitchen, they bounce ideas off each other all the time to find ways of utilising ingredients and creating exciting new dishes to serve. They each have their own interests and talents. Stevie heads up the kitchen team, Emily looks after the specials board dishes for the restaurant and ready meals for the shop. Kaylee is multi talented and ensures we always have a fantastic range of cakes and sweet delights on offer, whilst keeping the shop stocked full of goodies. Kelly is our kitchen assistant and fully supports our chefs. We have won Great Taste Awards for apple & almond cake, blueberry & lemon frangipan and have won a Soil Association award for our fruit scones. We make as much ourselves as possible the Cross Lanes way with our kitchen working hand in hand with our fantastic front of house team, butchers and shop team. We use our own cured bacon and homemade sausages in the breakfast dishes and bring tasty meat dishes onto the menu such as beef kofta kebabs, pulled pork and amazing Sunday roasts.
Cross Lanes Coffee
Not only is our food superb, but our coffee is top notch to. Our front of house team are excelling with their barista skills making a quality cuppa. Our Alex holds the title at the moment for making the best coffee with latte art (some of his work pictured above), he's our main man on the machine, but the rest of the team are very competitive and are not far behind him!
