The Kingfisher Kitchen at Castle Espie

Nestled in a quiet corner on the North West shore of Strangford Lough at WWT Castle Espie Wetland Centre, the Kingfisher Kitchen is a hidden gem with unrivalled and uninterrupted views of the nature reserve’s lake across to Scrabo Tower.

Throughout the week, we serve home-cooked hearty breakfasts, seasonal specials, light lunches, Castle Espie classics and afternoon teas.

We also have a hand-picked a selection of quality fair-trade coffee and teas, plus a great range of refreshing soft drinks. They’re the perfect match for our signature scones, tempting tray bakes, moreish muffins and homemade cakes and tarts.

There are lots of menu options for little ones, child-friendly facilities, a soft play area and plenty of room for buggies too.

WWT Castle Espie also has a Space to Change facility, which ensures that the personal hygiene needs of children and adults who need changing and lifting facilities for their personal care are met when away from home, as much as possible.

After enjoying the Kingfisher Kitchen, you can round off your visit by exploring the tranquil Sensory Garden and the Castle Espie Gallery, which are also admission free, or venture out on to the stunning nature reserve for a small entry fee.

Opening Hours 7 days a week 9.30am-5pm
