‘Six years ago Paul and Linda Thomas decided they wanted to take the roadside caff concept and turn it around. After a lot of hard graft they’ve now succeeded in bringing a little cafe culture to Marlesford’s hard shoulder.

Unsurprisingly, Farmcafe is no longer simply a pitstop for those who spot it on the off chance; word has spread and it has become a real attraction for the area.┬áPaul and Linda know they couldn’t have done it without the great local produce available in the area – and on sale in the food market adjacent to the cafe. Even more reasons to spend your weekends on the A12.’
