Great team who are friendly, happy to help and serve delicious goodies. It's great to have this history in the village and even better that they do lots of vegetarian options.

I came across the place by accident - my next visit will be planned. It's a small café in a little wooden building that serves the most wonderful food. Freshly made, imaginative and well served, with a surprisingly wide menu given the size of the...More

We are a small family run Cafe/Deli/Bistro catering for breakfasts, brunches and lunches! We tend to get particularly busy from 12-2 so booking is a good idea... Our food is a modern British/Mediterranean style we offer Sandwiches, salads, tapas as well as daily specials. The food is all made on site, there is great attention to detail. We are licensed so there is always a chance of a glass of wine or a craft ale! We offer cakes and coffee all day too so pop in for a light bite or a full meal, the choice is yours. There (will be) a terrace overlooking the fields to the distance, there are panoramic views over beautiful Suffolk countryside. We offer limited facilities for Children, there is an accessible toilet and entrance ramp. Priority parking can be reserved if walking is a problem, just shout! Please come and try our delicious seasonal foods!
