Cafe 1618 - The Toast of Teesdale

Middleton is a quaint market town on the North side of Teesdale, County Durham. Teesdale offers peaceful open spaces, majestic waterfalls, adventure, culture, shopping and local food.

Cafe 1618 and Restaurant "Number 17" is a fully licenced
bistro / restaurant providing quality food and drinks all day. Visit for a coffee, sip a beer, join us for dinner or make a weekend of it with our Bed & Breakfast. 

Also now open is the Cafe 1618 @ Bowlees. Explore Upper Teesdale, with footpath links to Low Force, High Force, Newbiggin and the Pennines.

If you're planning to visit Teesdale, are looking to organise an event, or have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.


Bev is front of house and Jon is the chef, and both fill their roles like square pegs in square holes, with excellent help from local staff.
