Delaneys – Café Extension

The Rudyard Lake Trust are pleased to announce the completion of the extension to the café at the Lake.


The work has taken some 6 months to complete and it is planned that the café can now be open every day during the Winter months rather than just at weekends.

Our thanks to everyone involved, our Funders, the generous public donations received along with our Builders & many volunteers.


In recognition of the inheritance received from Jan Delaney of Rudyard Montana which “kick started” our project the room will be known as “Delaney’s”.


Thank You

The Rudyard Lake Cafe (ran by S.D.R. Catering)

Quality Buffets For All Occasions

There is a cafe located at the Activity centre where you can enjoy a wide selection of hot and cold meals and snacks overlooking the lake.


S.D.R. Catering was established when the function room at the activity centre at Rudyard Lake was hired out to groups who required catering.


The business has grown considerably over the years and has provided many lunch time buffets to corporate groups who have always given excellent feedback.


SDR Catering has also prepared large scale party buffets for christenings, funeral gatherings, anniversaries and birthday parties.
