The farm cafe + shop near Woodbridge is a ‘roadside caff that takes its food seriously’

This is how Jay Rayner of The Observer described us in 2009. Ten years on, our philosophy remains the same: good honest locally produced quality ingredients transformed in our kitchens by our dedicated small team of talented chefs into mouthwatering breakfasts, lunches, and afternoon teas.

Good Food As Fast As We Can

The cafe menu has at its heart the wonderfully abundant local produce found right here on our doorstep in East Suffolk. Our kitchens transform this produce into our mouthwatering breakfasts, lunches and afternoon teas with chef's specials each day influenced by the seasons.

This Season

We update our menus regularly and offer chef’s daily specials reflecting the seasonal produce we are lucky enough to source from right here in Suffolk.  Check out our menus for what’s current.


In Store

Our handy shop is right next door to the cafe so if you've enjoyed tucking into our free range (and gluten free) pork bangers or golden-yolked local eggs you can pick up a pack to take home with you. The shop also stocks local veg, fruit, poultry, smoked fish, cheeses and a large selection of jams, chutneys, sauces, biscuits, cakes and bread in addition to daily newspapers, local ice creams, gifts, greetings cards and a large assortment of seasonal plants.

We also have a selection of seasonal soups and pies from our cafe for you to enjoy at home. Our pies can be purchased fresh or frozen, while our soups are available frozen.

Before You Visit

We don't take table bookings but instead we operate as a traditional convenient walk-in cafe. Please just come along and our friendly staff will take very good care of you on your arrival. There may be a short wait for a table at very busy times.

Well behaved dogs on leads (at all times) are very welcome in the cafe and shop. Water bowls are available around the property and we have a garden area at the back of the cafe. Please note - the garden is also well used by other customers and children so, should your dog leave a deposit, please remember to clean up making use of the garden dustbin provided.

The cafe is on one level with a wheelchair accessible disabled toilet.

We cook to your order only so not a sausage, pie or even a chip sits around sadly wilting in our kitchens. We believe our approach to freshly prepared food gives you the best possible taste experience and we hope you do too. We also operate on a strict "first come, first served " basis but some orders for cold food may be prepared and served while a hot food order is being cooked. If you are in a hurry, please speak to a member of staff who will be able to advise on what can be prepared and served within your timeframe.

We’re easy to find right beside the main road (A12) just north of Woodbridge – and we’ve plenty of parking – making us a convenient stop-off if you’re heading up to Aldeburgh or elsewhere on the Suffolk coast.

We offer lots of vegetarian and vegan options. We can also cater for coeliacs and those with other food allergies. Please make any allergy known to the waiting staff before you place your order or ask to speak to the cafe supervisor who will be happy to advise and make the kitchen aware of your allergy.
