The Village Green Cafe
In the heart of this quaint village, The Village Green Café sits pretty as a picture, tempting locals and tourists through its doors. At this homely and cosy establishment, discover toys and colouring books to amuse children, rustic gifts to browse and an outdoor seating area which is just as delightful as inside.
Known as the little café with a big heart, The Village Green Café serves lovingly prepared, fresh food made from locally sourced ingredients. The menu and daily specials board provide plenty of inviting choices including soup, sandwiches, jacket potatoes, pies and tarts. There are tasty breakfasts, light lunches, snacks and afternoon tea (booking required), and no meal is complete without a Fairtrade or organic coffee or tea.
My friend loved the spring onion, potato and Lincolnshire Poacher cheese tart, while I found the combination of sharp goat's cheese and caramelised onion on a puff pastry base delicious. Both were accompanied by artisan granary bread, crunchy coleslaw and zingy salad. From the wonderful array of desserts, including whisky fruit cake and gluten-free fig and orange cake, my friend chose the chewy cherry and maple syrup Pavlova. My generous portion of their signature tangy lime and courgette cake also did the trick. The Village Green Café is a haven filled with wholesome, home-baked treats
