Lower Barn Cafe


Lower Barn Farm,
London Road,


When you are lucky enough to have such delicious, plentiful and varied ingredients on your doorstep, as we do, you'd be foolish to look elsewhere. That's why we at Lower Barn Cafe use only the best locally sourced food when we freshly prepare your meal, and we are certain you'll agree, you can taste the difference.

You see, perfection is in the detail. As well as making each meal to order, we regularly rotate our selection of mouth-watering and award-winning sausages; our homemade cakes, chutneys, jams and hollandaise sauce are also all lovingly prepared from scratch by our chefs. Relax in front of our cosy wood-burning stove, catch-up with friends on our comfy sofas or enjoy the sunshine and fresh air in our new cafe garden, complete with patio furniture and lawn.

We're based on the Lower Barn Farm site, so you'll be able to work up an appetite as you peruse a showroom hosting an enormous range of stoves, fireplaces, cookers, barbecues, outdoor fires and more.
So whether you're looking to snuggle up in front of the fire with a pot of tea, enjoy a coffee and cake in the sun or fill up with a hearty meal, pop into Lower Barn Cafe, we won't disappoint.
