The Ramblers Retreat Country Tea Room is open with a takeaway service available.
In this unprecedented time full of changes and a ‘new normal’, we hope all of our guests and friends are keeping well and staying safe. We hope you’ve been able to find joy and positives in the little things during lockdown. To anyone who has struggled during this time, all of us at the Ramblers Retreat send you all of our love and positive thoughts.
The Ramblers Retreat has welcomed visitors to Dimmingsdale with lovingly homemade food, cakes and drinks for nearly 40 years. We’ve really missed having you all around for the past few months. We wanted to update you all on how we’re ensuring the safe operating of the Ramblers Retreat Country Tea Room.
The safety of our team, guests, communities and family is our top priority; all decisions we’ve made are based on the information and advice provided by the UK Government. We haven’t rushed these decisions and are focusing on providing a service that we are confident keeps the level of risk at the absolute minimum. You can find an in-depth list of the measures we’ve put in place below.
As we adjust to the new normal, our opening hours will look a little different to what you’re used to seeing, as we continue with our phased reopening, we’ll be extending our opening hours. Keep an eye on our website, email newsletter & social media for the latest updates.
Our current opening hours are:
Saturday, Sunday & Bank Holidays: 10:30am-4:00pm
We’re currently closed Monday-Wednesday as we adjust to the new normal. We’re working on increasing our hours as soon as possible. Check back soon.

Whether you’re with us for light bites like our amazing Staffordshire Oatcakes & toasted sandwiches, barista made coffee and a slice of one of our famous homemade cakes or just a organic ice cream before a walk around Dimmingsdale with the family, we’re sure you’ll enjoy your visit. We pride ourselves on serving lovingly made food & drinks and, wherever possible, we buy our ingredients from local suppliers within Staffordshire & Derbyshire. This allows us to support our local community, reduce our environmental impact and ensure the quality of our ingredients are consistently high.
We’re so very pleased to be able to welcome our guests and local communities back with open (socially distanced) arms. We’d like to thank all of our guests and friends for being so supportive during these difficult times. When we do reopen, the Ramblers Retreat will be different. We will need time to adjust to smaller teams and additional health and safety measures, but we can guarantee the warm Ramblers welcome and service that has been at our core since opening our doors in 1981.
We kindly ask that you continue to be supportive of and patient with our amazing team members as we safely return and adjust to the new normal. We’ll always keep all of our guests updated through social media, our website and our email newsletter.
