"Expert baristas"


The Bothy Cumbria  is a great place to relax and refuel.

Our 50 seat restaurant  is warm and friendly and is situated to the rear of Mad about Mountains our specialist Outdoor Store.

With our outdoor history our philosophy is simple – We want a great place to chill with speciality coffee and artisan home cooked food which is dog friendly and where boots and wet gear are no problem.

We aim to offer food for all with plenty of options for those who require gluten free or follow a plant based vegan diet.

Our philosophy extends to sourcing as much of the best natural ingredients locally. We use a seasonal speciality coffee which comes from small cooperatives which rewards local growers and we are keen that our environmental footprint is minimal using bio-degradable packaging throughout.
