Cafe at the Dukeries, Notcutts
WELLBECK CAFE AT THE DUKERIES
The food at the Wellbeck Cafe was about average; perfectly edible but nothing special. Paninis aand
toasties came in at between �4 to �5, sandwiches were �3 to �4. Main meals were �6 to �7. Note that
they only start serving main meals after 12.

and this was no exception. This was one of their medium sized outlets and the range
of fish, feed and hardware was top quality.
There was a medium sized pet centre
which should cover most people's needs.
The majority of areas were accessible by wheelchair both inside and outside. Wheelchairs are
available at the front door.
Clean and well maintained. the were ladies, gents and disabled toilets. There were also baby
The car park is on flat ground and there were more than enough spaces.
