Have visited twice now and will definitely be back many more times. The cream teas are the best around and served with proper loose leaf tea.

This place is heaven. The cafe is beautiful, the food is delicious and the staff are friendly. My favourite is the home-made sausage roll with a mug of soup...always perfection. We’ve been several times because it’s the perfect place for adults, children and doggies too.

My family group and I had planned a walk around the forest and thought we’d stop here first for lunch. I wasn’t expecting much - in fact I was reluctant. Before reaching Woods Cafe I’d pictured sticky tablecloths and soggy sandwiches...I’m not sure why! Perhaps...More

Nothing amazing but a surprising little place. Casual, dogs and kids no problem and a simple easy menu with limited items. Kids liked the big sandwiches, the soup was really good and I had a summer ploughmans. A simple cold meal but the pickles and...More

Woods Cafe is a beautiful cottage cafe in the middle of Cardinham Woods. Open all year round, we serve warming home-made stews and soups in the winter and doorstop sandwiches with an ever changing specials menu throughout the summer. The cream teas are fantastic and the cakes are always fresh. We try to use local produce and suppliers where possible.
