Eat the View Cafe at Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre

Local lunches, hot drinks and Shropshire cream teas in our Shropshire Hills Cafe

In our award winning Shropshire Hills café, we are very proud of celebrating the best of Shropshire Hills food. We make dishes from scratch on the premises using locally sourced produce. Our plan is to grow produce on site especially for the café and it doesn’t get more local than that!

Relax over a delicious home cooked meal and enjoy coffee and a cake or buy a delicious ice cream to eat as you wander around the meadows. We also have free WIFI available in the cafe.

Our ‘dish of the day‘ offer is a firm favourite with a selection of 3 different hot meals and these range from cottage pie, lasagne, fish pie, fish and chips, vegetarian bean casserole, warm quiche and much more, served 12pm-2pm every day.

All sandwiches are freshly prepared for you to enjoy, inside or out and there is always soup and a roll on offer as well as toasted sandwiches and jacket potatoes, fresh from our oven.

Our children’s menu ranges from sausage or fish fillet fingers, chips and beans or any main meal as a child portion.

We can cater for your special dietary requirements and our chefs are brilliant at meeting individual needs, just ask if there is something specific you would like.

On Sundays, dress the tables with linen tablecloths, flowers and crystal and offer a fantastic roast dinner – it’s very popular so best to book ahead.

Lamb and the Landscape

For hundreds of years, sheep farming has been an important industry in the Shropshire Hills. Once, wool was important but now it is meat in the form of lamb and mutton which generates income for hill farmers.

The upland landscape you see has been shaped by grazing and without it, many upland areas would revert to birch scrub, which was the predominant habitat before the areas were cleared in the Iron Age.

Whilst over-grazing reduces biodiversity, controlled grazing allows for a mosaic of habitats. On Long Mynd and Stiperstones, heather, gorse, bilberry, open grassland, and bracken all thrive providing a home for a range of rare wildlife.

With out sheep farming, much of upland Shropshire would not be economically viable and habitat would be damaged as a result. You can help to preserve the rural economy and our landscape by buying some our delicious local produce, including our famous lamb. Hence our slogan “Eat The View”
