Café

Our café is open all day for morning coffee, snacks, light lunches and afternoon teas, both to eat in and take away.

We have a professional-grade coffee machine to make cappuccinos, espressos, lattes and more, while tea can be served in a simple mug, or a proper pot with china cups and saucers. We also offer a range of caffeine-free hot drinks, including decaf coffee, herbal teas and hot chocolate, which can be ordered with or without whipped cream and marshmallows.

We make sandwiches, toasties and paninis to order and we have a small selection of meat and vegetarian pastries bought in fresh daily.

Seasonal lunch specials include home-made vegetarian soup in winter and home-made quiche in summer, plus ploughman’s lunches with local ham and cheese.

And of course, you can always treat yourself to a slice of home-made cake, brownie or a flapjack!

All of our cakes are home-made and freshly baked

 

These fabulous flapjacks are freshly baked by one of our volunteers and our most popular sweet treat!

 

You can’t beat a nice cup of tea and a slice of homemade sponge cake…

 

...that is, unless you're in the mood for a creamy cappuccino and home-made brownie!

Our outside eating area is popular with dog walkers (dog water bowl is always ready filled) and cyclists (free water bottle top ups) all year round, but especially in summer.

Dogs on leashes (like regular Tessa, pictured) are very welcome on our patio!
Tessa the dog (above) is a regular and loves to pick up her owner’s paper

 

Cycle club members enjoying a well deserved break

If you’re planning a large group cycle or hike through the village, you can phone us ahead of time to give the number in your party and your estimated arrival time – that way we’ll be ready to welcome you with your reserved table and preferred refreshments!

       

We’ve brightened up the patio with seasonally planted window boxes, and we often have locally grown plants for sale too.

On hotter days, we offer an array of ice creams and cold drinks, including delicious iced lattes.

Freshly made iced latte – so refreshing on a summer’s day!
