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.

Delicious cakes with lovely staff who are constantly busy but always stop to say hello and make us feel welcome. This cafe is a treat to visit after a long walk.

Found this when searching google for a place for cream teas on the way home from our holiday, an what a great find! Very friendly atmosphere, lovely vintage theme, and delicious cream teas. We especially loved the 'naughty hot chocolates'. Quite reasonable prices. Also seemed like a lovely place for a dog walk or bike ride in the surrounding woods.... More

We popped here on our trip to padstow and we wanted to stop somewhere a bit different. The scones were lovely, warmed up with ample lashings of jam and cream. The only downside is we stopped for 20 minutes and had to pay the full parking fee in the car park, you have no choice, I think it was £2.... More

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
