SOMETHING FOR EVERY TASTE                                                                                                                                                                      
The café serves a selection of delicious fair-trade coffees, teas and hot chocolates, and a range of mouth-watering homemade cakes, scones and biscuits, lovingly prepared to a very high standard by our volunteers. Chocolate marble cake, lemon drizzle cake, feather-light sponges, gooey chocolate brownies, fruit and cheese scones. There are now 3 choices of delicious gluten free bakes and also a vegan chocolate brownie...there's always something fresh to tempt every taste, every day!  The café is the ideal venue for a morning break, in a relaxing setting with special space for both children and adults who want some time out.


  • Meet the Vicar! On the first Thursday of each month there's an opportunity to meet the Vicar of St Oswald's, Terence McDonough, who will be happy to chat over a cuppa about weddings, funerals, the meaning of life, or anything else that's on your mind! Local policeman, Lee Pointing and PSCO Tom Richardson also call in on a frequent basis and enjoy a chat as well as aiming to help with any issues of law and order. Ask at the Cafe for the next dates one of them is visiting
