Café

Our on-site café is run by local business John Watt & Son.

John Watt & Son are specialist coffee roasters and tea blenders, and have been a constant presence in Carlisle since 1865. As well as the Museum café, John Watt & Son have sites in Bank Street, and more recently Blackfriars Street which operate as coffee shops and cafés. Both draw in local residents and visitors to Carlisle to sample the unique award-winning coffee blends and delicious menu options.

The café offers a selection of locally sourced produce, as well as coffee roasted here in Carlisle.

Open daily between April and October
