The Docky Hut cafe

Docky Hut Cafe at Wicken Fen

Find out about the improvements we’re making to the Docky Hut Café – you’ll still be able to enjoy tasty light bites and treats while the work takes place.

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.

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.

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!

Opening and serving times

Please note that on 7 and 8 October we’ll be fitting out the temporary café, so we’ll be serving tea, coffee and a selection of cakes and sandwiches in the Visitor Centre.  From 9 – 27 October the temporary café will be open from 10am to 5pm, and 28 October to 17 February 2020 from 10am to 4.30pm.
