The Wagtail Deli Café

We pride ourselves on creating real food, from local ingredients, backed by great service. It’s a recipe for success founded on quality without compromise, aimed at people who are as passionate about food as we are.

Our Café is situated in the heart of Arnside, opposite the Pier, in an area of outstanding natural beauty famous for its amazing wildlife, stunning scenery and superb walks.

We offer a range of dishes to suit many tastes and always have vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options available. You can see our current menu here: wagtail deli cafe menu

Our pies are something special.  Generously filled and always tasty, we make them ourselves from scratch using our own homemade stocks and pastry.  We avoid cheap ingredients like palm oil, preferring to make our own pastry with butter and lard.  We also make our own vegetarian and vegan pastry.

Our cakes are delicious and handmade using real butter, eggs and natural flavours.

Our coffee is fairtrade and carefully sourced for great flavour and good ethics.   We are proud to serve Puro Organic & Fairtrade Dark Roast Coffee, as well as a range of guest coffees from local roasters, Kircabi.  We also have a lovely decaffeinated blend.

You will soon be able to take our food home with you!  We make our products by hand in small batches, then freeze them to seal in the goodness.  We’ve tested our products extensively (as our very round bellies will testify) to ensure they cook from frozen (where applicable) and give you clear instructions on how to cook them.  Look out for them alongside our home-made pickles, jams, chutneys, coffee and some of the other fantastic produce we use and serve at the Wagtail Deli Cafe soon.

There is nothing bland, boring or mass produced about the food and drinks at The Wagtail Deli Cafe, so if you’re hungry for something wholesome, flavourful and truly memorable, then you’re in the right place.

So what can we tempt you with today?
