Alderford café overlooks the lake, so come rain or shine there’s always something to see. All the food on the menu is homemade by the alderford café team and reflects our belief in using fresh, local ingredients wherever possible. We have seasonal specials as well as the alderford favourites, which include the Eggs Benedict and Lynn’s homemade scones – which are highly acclaimed and form the mainstay of our afternoon teas.

We offer children sized portions for youngsters and high chairs are available. Our menu also caters for a range of dietary requirements but if there is something you can’t see then just ask a member of the team.
PLEASE NOTE THE CAFE WILL CLOSE EARLY AT 1.30PM ON 18TH SEPTEMBER FOR A PRIVATE FUNCTION. SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.
From June we are welcoming chef James Sherwin and his pop-up restaurant James in a Space. James’ philosophy is hyper local food which is of the moment and reflects true Shropshire terroir. The night will unfold with seven courses and you’ll only see the secret menu and discover what you’ve eaten at the end of the evening. Book in with James via email.
Special events and private hire
During the day, the cafe veranda can be pre-booked for small meetings, lunches and afternoon teas, as well as funeral teas.
The cafe is also a unique space for private evening events and can be closed from late afternoon for functions.
