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.

Just love this tea house ,home made cakes rolls etc etc,all ways somewhere to seat ,and the service is second to none. On rainy days you can go inside by the log fire with your Dog. Also there now is cycle hire bmx or similar, you could easily have the day here because the walks go for miles .

Stopped here after lovely walk in forest - weather was misty and murky - but cafe complemented the surroundings - not too busy when we went. Delicious cream tea and excellant tea ( coming from an avid coffee drinker).

Visited last weekend and despite being a mucky old day the woods were heaving! The café itself was really busy with all outside picnic tables being full and queuing outside of the door of the café! We were lucky to get a table inside from people just leaving. Visited with my 2 daughters, we had foregone lunch so as we... More

Very nice choice of simple meals, homemade cake a speciality, only gripe it's very small and cramped in wet weather as it gets overcrowded. Lovely surroundings in summer though.

My visit was with two friends, My self and one friend had sausage sandwiches, which was the best I've ever had. My other friend had pea and mint soup, which she... More

The woods Cafe is the perfect place to stop for a bite and a drink after completing any of the walks in the woods. The prices are a little high, however most of the food is home made and delicious. Staff are friendly and very co-operative.
