A group of about 16 of us went for a walk in the area and then had lunch in the café. We did book our meals before walking to enable them to cater for us. They were friendly and helpful and the food was tasty and home made. I enjoyed a home made pea and ham soup with a doorstep... More

We regularly walk our dog at Cardingham woods and the best treat ever is to share a sausage sandwich followed by a cream tea! The food is excellant quality but by far the best treat ever is the warm scones - soft in the middle, crunchy on the outside with what seems like homemade jam and clotted cream! We have... More

Between the two main sections of the car park, right next to the children's play area, is the Woods Cafe. There is indoor and... More

In an ideal spot in the Cardinham Woods, the Woods Cafe is a welcome break from Walking in the Forestry Commission woods at Cardinham. The cafe is "dog friendly" and as the woods are popular with dog walkers, so is the cafe. There are tables inside and outside and well behaved dogs are welcome inside the cafe. The food was... More

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.

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.
