Woods Cafe is a beautiful cottage cafe in the middle of Cardinham Woods. Open all year round, we serve warming home-made stews and soups in the winter and doorstop sandwiches with an ever changing specials menu throughout the summer. The cream teas are fantastic and the cakes are always fresh. We try to use local produce and suppliers where possible.

Great food, service & atmosphere

Enjoyed a lovely lunch here with friends & family on a very rainy day when we'd enjoyed a dog walk around the woods first. The staff are very attentive - providing my breast feeding friend with a glass of water without even asking; now that is outstanding customer service in my book. The food was... read more

We were the first guests in the flat above the cafe and it was absolutely fabulous! I have literally travelled to the four corners of the earth but this was idyllic in every sense. Dave and Lara, the owners, are utterly charming and have made the flat home from home. Lara's attention to detail is incredible and we have wanted... More

Lovely café nestled in Cardinham woods which serves food from 10.30am till I think 4pm. On this visit we had a tea, hot chocolate and cake, all of which were very enjoyable. Having ordered in the café we sat outside with the dogs and waitresses brought out our order. This café being in the woods is visited by many people... More

We use this lovely cafe regularly and the food and ambience is always excellent. A useful hint for the owners - staff taking food orders need to make more eye contact (we visited Sat 14th Mar) and pay attention to detail. We ordered 2 savoury scone meals to eat in and 2 mini lemon meringue pies to take away &... More

Such a hidden gem, I didn't realise there was a cafe here. Came down for a walk and saw this gorgeous cottage looking cafe. The Soup and sandwich was absolutely delicious. Couldn't fit in any cake so will have to return!! Lovely cafe and such a great location. Will go again, truly recommend it.

What a Gem, we have visited the area many times but never stumbled across the trails, walks and wonderful cafe. So glad we found it in a guide book. We have sandwiches and shared a cream tea. Tasty food, with good ingredients and a good selection of cakes. The dog seemed to approve too and he's had many a cream... More

A great place to stop after a walk around the woods, or just to find somewhere different. Playground outside with lots of outdoor seating too. Food is excellent and good value for money. Wonderful cottage feel when sitting inside. Very friendly too. Paying £2 to park when visiting is annoying though.

Walking the dogs is always a problem when visiting an area you do not know. We took some advice on an area called Cardinham Woods. After parking the car we saw the little area set aside as a cafe, wow, what a little gem that turned out to be, excellent staff and freshly made food to order, the coffee was... More
