Description: Our Cafe is tricky to find at the back of The Mill Yard by the river, but deserves to be found for all sorts of reasons.... Based in the old Bobbin Loft with some of the old line workings still in place, we have traditional seating plus a cosy sofa area inside plus decking over looking the river Kent for warmer days. The Cafe offers great breakfasts, lunches, home-made cakes and afternoon teas plus daily meaty, veggie & fishy specials & Cream Teas. The menus represent good wholesome, value for money meals, all cooked on the premises. More than a Cafe, the venue is available to hire in the evening for functions, club nights, dinners etc. We can also supply buffets at your own venue for all occasions or Wilf's Away meals to heat up yourself for easy group catering.

This was an unexpected find for us after visiting one of the shops in the mill yard they recommended Wilf's cafe to us. It's brilliant for family's and has a really good children's menu and a little area for children upstairs with a few toys and books. The food was really nice I particularly enjoyed the humous salad. Well worth... More

I'm quite a regular to Wilfs and the main reason. Wilfs Famous Veggie Chilli, although everything else is great. The staff are friendly, plenty of parking & nice location next to the river.

Whilst Wilf' s is not the easiest place to find, it is so worth the search. The atmosphere is comfortable, and the staff are helpful and friendly. We had a cooked breakfast, and despite being a vegetarian, had a very enjoyable meal. It can be hard to find a good veggie breakfast, but Wilf' s was superb! All round great... More

Characterfull café in old mill buildings in Staveley. Not twee as you are at the back of an industrial estate next to the Hawkshead brewery. But the café itself serves good snacks/coffee/tea with friendly staff. But the nicest part is the platform at the back where you sit over the river and can watch the water coming over the weir....

The food here is excellent and reasonably price and you get plenty for your money, only downside was the lack of menus on the tables, and tables were not cleared but other that that it was great

When the sun is shining, sitting outside Wilfs is a nice experience, with the view of Hawkshead brewery alongside. Good coffee and cake, pleasant service and value. Big cycle shop nearby. Perhaps not obvious to find...needs better signage from nearby village centre.

We often call in to Wilf's for lunch or a cuppa and a cake, and it is always great. It's a nice, relaxed and friendly café with something for everyone - kids, vegetarians, hungry men! The food is prepared unbelievably quickly and always seems fresh with nice salads and veggies. They just seem to have it sorted here - good... More
