Lovely little find tucked in the woods. Great for a cup of tea or a spot of lunch. Food was fresh and homemade and it was so cosy inside. We’ll definitely be back.

Although the main menu hasn't changed in years, there are always interesting and well produced specials. In the summer the ice cream stall outside sells really good ice cream.

Have visited twice now and will definitely be back many more times. The cream teas are the best around and served with proper loose leaf tea.

This place is heaven. The cafe is beautiful, the food is delicious and the staff are friendly. My favourite is the home-made sausage roll with a mug of soup...always perfection. We’ve been several times because it’s the perfect place for adults, children and doggies too.

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.
