Roadford Lake, Broadwoodwidger, Lifton, Devon, PL16 0RL

Roadford Lake, nestled on the edge of Dartmoor National Park in Devon, is an idyllic location for a family day out, a special celebration or a corporate event.

Located just minutes off the A30 between Okehampton and Launceston, Roadford Lake combines spectacular views with high quality customer service. 

Food and drink

Situated on the edge of the lake, with stunning views in all directions, the café at Roadford Lake is the perfect place for a refreshing drink and slice of cake with friends and family. We offer locally sourced produce, including great coffee from Okehampton and Gerry's Original ice cream. 

We always aim to help protect our environment, by reducing our use of plastic, keeping food miles low and recycling as much as possible. We try our best not to use disposables, but when we do, you can be sure that everything is fully compostable and we even use that compost to grow our own herbs.

The cafe is currently open Monday to Friday, 10am – 4pm, Saturday and Sunday 10am - 5pm (hatch service will be available from 9am) with indoor and outdoor seating available. We offer food service until 3pm Monday to Saturday. Breakfast until 12pm, coffee and cakes plus pasties and sausage rolls are available on Sundays. We have a full range of hot and cold drinks as well as ice cream!
