Gem in the forest

We have visited Woods a number of times. Dogs and children (even muddy ones) made welcome and food has always been excellent. Home made cakes definitely worth a detour and congratulations guys on catering so well for gluten free diets.

We visited on Saturday as a stop off before we continued to st ives, it was perfect for our toddler and jackrussell to let off steam, and food was amazing! We sampled pulled pork, sausage roll, veggie platter with humus and a selection of cakes all were presented and tasted great. Would highly recommend a visit, we will be back... More

We met my son and partner here as a place to have a light lunch. We do not know the area and picked it form Tripadvisor. It was a rotten very damp day and we even wondered whether they would be open. They certainly were and most table occupied. We chose form a well balanced menu and all had different... More

Spent a leisurely morning and did the lady mile walk (at least I think it was called that! It was 1 1/2 miles up one side of the river and down the other side. Many pushchairs were seen and lots of dog walkers. Great cycle routes on offer too and it seems the locals really use this place as their... More

I haven't been to these woods for several decades, but I was in Bodmin and decided to have lunch here. It was a sunny Saturday lunchtime and the car park was almost full, though the cafe was surprisingly quiet. I choose the cheese ploughman's which was different to a standard ploughman's with some Cornish cheeses, celery, walnut salad, home-made chutney... More

Visited Woods cafe in the idyllic setting of Cardinham Woods. We had a lovely walk on one of the numerous walks, and afterwards we had a lovely coffee and cake. The lemon tart was was naughty but extremely nice, and the staff were very nice and professional.

On a dreary Bank Holiday Sunday, we went for a walk in the beautiful Cardinham Woods near Bodmin on our annual short break to Cornwall. Came across the exceptional Woods Cafe. What an amazing find! We had the most delicious cream tea we've ever had! It was absolutely scrumptious and knocks spots off even the best cream teas we've had... More

There is a beautifully refurbished 2 bedroom flat above the cafe that few people realise is a holiday let!! We stayed here last weekend for a family wedding and we were not disappointed. After a warm welcome & a delicious lunch in the coffee shop, we were shown our 'digs'. Spotlessly clean, warm and cosy with some basic compliamentry essentials... More
