Village Cafe
A place for “cake and a piece of quiet!”

A welcoming hub for both locals and visitors, the Village Café is based next to St Oswald’s Church in the  Hall. It’s a cheerful environment with a special children’s corner.
  During term times it’s open three mornings a week: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, from 9am – 12 noon, and is open during half-term too. And there’s free parking.
For more information about the Café contact Pippa at [email protected].

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, cherry 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
