Also serving a range of fresh food, coffees, speciality teas and cold drinks. Take in the beautiful views of Northumberland countryside while enjoying the best in home cooked food including our wholesome children’s menu; all made using our very own meat and dairy products and the best quality locally sourced ingredients.
A fantastic family day out is guaranteed at Wheelbirks with play areas to suit all ages. Younger children can enjoy the excitement of an indoor pre-school play area (due to the popularity of the pre-school play area as a venue for birthday parties, the play area is often booked and therefore unavailable on Sunday mornings between 10am and 12noon), while older children can run safe and free in the orchard playing area (open from spring - october half term - weather permitting), which is full of adventure and thrills. With play equipment in both areas Wheelbirks promises to leave no one out of the fun.
No booking necessary, except for parties of more than 10 which can be arranged by calling the Parlour on 07717 282014.
Free Wi-Fi is available in the parlour.
