The Hemmel Cafe

With effect from Monday 2 November The Hemmel CafĂ© will not be open on Mondays, Tuesdays or Wednesdays . We will continue to open 10 a.m to 4p.m Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays . Reservations aren’t always necessary but are recommended for busy times. To reserve a table please call 01434 685568

The Hemmel Cafe is set in the beautiful North Pennines which is an area of outstanding natural beauty hemmel-signand possibly one of the last places to catch a glimpse of the red squirrel.  It is an excellent location for Tourists, Walkers, Cyclists & (weather permitting) Skiers. For cyclists, it is on the C2C; for skiers and snowboarders, it is less than a 200 metre walk to the Ski-Allenheads slope; for walkers, there are numerous local walks plus, only a few miles away, Isaacs Tea Trail.

At the Hemmel Cafe we pride ourselves on serving good quality home-made food at very reasonable prices. Following the re-opening, there will be a reduced menu which is currently being created and will be added to the website as soon as possible.

The Cafe is in the middle of Allenheads and very easy to find – see Where We Are for how to find us.

We have a well appointed cafe downstairs, complete with wood burning stove, plus a comfortable library & lounge area overlooking the main room. Free wi-fi is available throughout.

There is a large, secluded outdoor area, including a play area for the children.
