We stopped here after walking one of the trails with our toddler and dog. The cake and coffee was delicious! We had a slice of the banoffee cake and peach frangipane. Our toddler really enjoyed his coconut vegan ball too!

This cafe is very popular particularly with the walkers that arrive to walk in the woods. Many of whom have dogs. The outside area is very child and pet friendly.

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.
