The Forest Cafe

Treat yourself to a slice of cake or a warming cup of hot chocolate from our recently refurbished Forest cafe. For that extra indulgence, go for a tray of chips.

The Forest Cafe

The Forest Café is our outdoor cafe serving fresh, locally sourced, homemade food. Whether you fancy a savoury or sweet treat, we've something on our menu for you.

On a hot day enjoy a sandwich and cool refreshing drink.. This year we have soft serve ice cream, so be tempted by this, go wild and add a flake.

If it's a bit chillier, tuck into some warming soup or enjoy a panini.  The sausage rolls are excellent and the chips are locally renowned.

The menu depends on seasonal availability.

The cafe is fully licensed and sells a range of bottled beers, cider as well as small bottles of wine.

A special cafe

The cafe has been awarded the Soil Association "Food for Life" Bronze certificate.  To reach this standard, the majority of food on the menu has to be freshly prepared; free from undesirable trans fats, sweeteners and additives; cooked by trained chefs; and use ingredients from sustainable and ethical sources.

An outdoors cafe

The cafe has tables in a hard standing area.  There is however no indoor eating area, although you can take cover in the Fisherman's Shelter, next to the Shell House.  This has benches and tables.
