Rising Cafe - From the Rubble


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2017 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

We love to serve delicious food at affordable prices. From Afternoon Tea to chilli con carne everything served at The Rising Cafe is homemade with love. Come in a get a freshly made scone with clotted cream, jam and loose leaf tea or a slice of one of our indulgent homebakes cakes. We are a charity run cafe and 100% of all profit goes to the work of Betel UK.

I go here regularly with my family for lunch, always struggle to squeeze in because we always forget to book. It’s great value and staff are lovely. Attached to the church, (‘Rising’ is the old courtyard) have a read of what they do.

Incredible experience. The entire staff was very open, and the reasoning behind the restaurant makes your entire meal for a good cause. The plating of the food (and it’s taste, of course!) are both really good, and it’s a place to get a good bite...More

Very nice pleasant staff. Everything reasonably priced and portion sizes good. Quirky decor. Homemade soup a particular favourite.

I am sure you can ring and book as the last time we were there some tables were reserved. Sure you will have a great lunch. Enjoy.

It was so busy when we were there that it would be a bad idea- very cramped, small spaces to walk through etc. And - not all other diners want dogs in cafes, so...no.
