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.

Excellent home made food in pleasant surroundings. Outside seating for the good weather. Friendly service in the midst of the forest.

Our second visit and still the best cake in Cornwall 😀 Very family and dog friendly. Homely and cosy and a friendly welcome from Dave & Lara and their staff. They should bring out a recipe book. Loved it so much it's the only time I've been inspired to bother to write a review. Keep on keepin' on.

Located in Cardinham Woods, Bodmin, this cafe is a real gem. The staff are all so polite, welcoming and friendly and the food is just amazing! My personal favourite is the delicious Pulled Pork in ciabata bun! Oh and all of the cakes that are available everyday!

We had soup and a cream tea and both were delicious. Set in a gorgeous forest making it an excellent place for a gentle walk and lunch.

Having just taken a good walk in Cardinham Woods, we wer hoping to get a hot meal. Having found a table, we reviewed the menu but everything was based on bread - sandwich, roll, ciabatta, et cetera. We were hoping for something more substantial and so moved on. Great location and dog-friendly but limited choice on food..

We live in west Cornwall and found out about Cardinham Woods back in March, and we have been 3 times since because we just can't stay away! Cardinham woods in itself is spectacular, and this little cafe nestled in the woods is perfect for refreshments after a bike ride, or to warm up after an autumn walk. The staff are... More

Love this place! Go once a week for a walk and a treat afterwards. I usually have the savoury cream tea which is two huge cheese scones, cream cheese, cheddar, homemade chutney and a pot of tea! Very filling but always need to make room for their amazing cakes! Love the staff here! Really lovely, particularly Lana!!

Set next to an amazing bike trail which I could recommend the woods cafe is beautifully set up and has a lovely outdoor cafe with summer umbrellas. Also it has something for the younger ones with a woodland outdoor play area. However I give it 4 stars as it was not dealing coke (soft drink). But lovely service.
