A charming cafe set in woodland aside Berry Pomery Castle. Good coffee and other drinks, fresh sandwiches and soups, cakes and tray-bakes. Locally sourced products. Our coffee is roasted just a few miles away and is an organic blend. We use organic milk and offer soya milk too. We light the wood burner often and right through the winter. Gluten free scones and brownies available.

We first visited the cafe just to have a coffee, after exploring the castle. The roast dinners looked amazing so we reserved a table a fortnight later. We were not disappointed. The choices are limited, but the food absolutely delicious. The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. You do... read more

Best Americanos we had during our stay in England. The cafe is so cute. We warmed up near the fireplace, listening to Leonard Cohen and admiring the view of Berry Pomeroy Castle from the window. The owners were very friendly. We should have stayed for lunch-- the soups smelled amazing!

We saw the cafe after our visit to Berry Pomeroy Castle. You really need to stop here and have a coffee and lunch. We chose the soup of the day, and a sausage sandwich along with coffee. The sandwiches are freshly made, generously sized, and really well presented. The soup was delicious and the coffee was good too. This was... More

First visit to this lovely little cafe for a while. It's in a beautiful setting in the woods with the castle as an amazing backdrop. There's new people running it and I think it's a big improvement. I had a delicious cappuccino and a good chat with Alan the new owner, lovely guy who has just taken over. Great coffee,... More

We often go out on a Sunday morning to give the grandson some exercise and something a little different. Today he was thrilled to see Berry Pomeroy Castle through the car window. While paying to get in the English Heritage ‘venue’ we saw the castle Café and debated whether we would pop in for grub after our castle attack. Well,... More
