We have stopped here many times over the years. The coffee is great but hot food after walking the dogs (and having dog moorings at the tables outside) is the best there is.

We come here regularly after walking through the woods and it is wonderful. Excellent coffee and homemade cakes. The meals are delicious and the specials inspired. Great for dogs and children too with the lovely playground just outside.

We loved this place and will definitely be coming back. Lovely cappuccino and tea (so good we had 2) (would have been better with a fancy coffee biscuit). Lovely cosy seating area with amazing open fire for my dog to cook himself on😀. Choice of fantastic home made cakes, we had the frangipani and it was the best we've ever... More

I visited with a friend and our babies. The young staff were accommodating and friendly. We both had lovely hot chocolates and a lunch of homity pie. We also ordered some extras for the babies. Everything was well prepared and pleasant. It's a cosy little spot and perfect for stopping in after a walk around the woods. We have also... More

Brilliant friendly service and really good creatively cooked home food, an absolute delight of a gem hidden at Cardinham Woods, in their wonderful home of a cafe. Worth a visit even without riding the... More

Superb walks with or without dogs. Tea room a little spotless gem. Be prepared for pay and display machines but after that all is free. Good picnic tables. Bar-b facilities. Stream for paddling plus dam building. What a day out for families. Wonderful.

Lovely little café tucked away in the woods - really scrummy cakes & cream teas and although we didn't sample them the sandwiches looked amazing too. Toys & books box to keep the little ones occupied - really nice family atmosphere, friendly service and considering how busy they were we didn't have too long to wait. Would like to go... More

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.
