About Woodhorn Museum

The Winding House Café opens 30 minutes after the museum and stops serving 30 minutes before the museum closes.

Overlooking the historic pit yard and opposite the exciting children’s play area inspired by Woodhorn’s industrial heritage, the Winding House café offers visitors a range of light refreshments, sandwiches and toasties featuring Northumbrian food and suppliers.

There’s an outside seating area too which is great if you want to relax whilst keeping an eye on the children or if you have the family dog with you.

The café features a specially commissioned artwork “The Making of a Man” by artist Nina Wakbayashi, capturing a young lad’s first shift underground in the Japanese manga cartoon style.

Enjoy a cup of delicious Ringtons Tea or coffee, or perhaps a refreshing rose lemonade from Fentimans with your home-made scones, tray bakes and sandwiches.

Try a toasted sandwich or some of our own delicious home-made soup and a roll from Trotters Family Bakers.
