Pick up seasonal refreshments from our temporary café just next to the Visitor Centre.  Sit in the Learning Centre building (or Visitor Centre if you are visiting with a dog), or grab a coffee to take out on your walk.  We’d be really grateful if you can bring your own cup (the Visitor Centre has bamboo EcoCups for sale if you need one) so that we can minimise the use of compostable cups.  You’ll get 25p off your cuppa if you do.

We've also got picnic tables in front of the boat shed opposite the Cycle Centre if you want to bring your own refreshments.

Docky Hut Café menu at Wicken Fen

Just like the landscapes we look after, our menu changes with the seasons. From fresh spring veg and summer fruits to hearty soups and festive flavours as the days grow colder.

Enjoy our delicious home-made scones, soup, sandwiches, sausage rolls, pasties, a selection of cakes and bakes (including gluten free), and hot and cold drinks.  NEW! From 9 October we’ll be serving barista coffee so pop in to try your favourite whether it’s a latte, espresso or cappuccino.

Our award-winning menu

We've achieved a Bronze Food for Life Served Here award from the Soil Association, the UK's leading food and farming charity. The accreditation shows our supporters our commitment to serving great food which we know is an important part of a good day out. We believe in serving fresh, local and honest food.

We’re extending our existing café building to increase the size of our kitchen and seating area.  The work will take place from October 2019 onwards, with the café due to reopen in February 2020.  We’ll be offering a wider selection of food and beverages using seasonal recipes and taking inspiration from Wicken Fen and its beautiful natural environment.  We’re looking forward to sharing the new space and food offer with you soon!
