I’ve been here twice recently. The first time I put it down to my bad choice, they are trying to offer something different and adventurous, but it simply tastes odd and doesn’t work. The quality of the ingredients is very good, but that doesn’t change...More

Located in a great garden centre, good for morning coffee or a full blown lunch, anything from a cake through to main meals, all freshly cooked.

Description
Look no further for a 'Seaonal Feast for your Senses'. The Wistow Cafe Bistro was completely refurbished in 2007 offering light, modern, airy surroundings in which to relax and eat. There is plenty of room across the cafe ... From the sunny conservatory, relaxed restaurant or outside tables and benches. We pride ourselves in offering our customers the best possible home-made food sourced locally. Our menu caters for everyone ....... You'll find freshly prepared sandwiches and salads, seasonal soups, yummy home-made cakes, pastries, Movenpick ice creams and gorgeous fresh Italian 'Illy' coffee. We also offer a 'take away service' for those customers popping in for something tasty, while soaking up the idyllic Wistow countryside.
