Welcome to the Barn Owl Café & Shop!
We have indoor seating for people purchasing food from the café and outdoor seating for picnics and can also provide catering for parties, meetings or events taking place at the farm, as well as the occasional weekend BBQ!
We are pleased that we meet our customers expectations for cleanliness and hold a 5 rating for food hygiene.
The Barn Owl Cafe is commited to helping the Environment and only uses ‘Compostable’ or ‘Recyclable’ products for ‘Take away’.
We encourage the use of your own cup and will give a discount of 5% on your hot drink.

Weekends and School holidays 10:00am-3.00pm

Please note that we stop serving hot food and freshly made sandwiches when the cafe closes.
We offer a ‘takeaway’ only service of drinks, snacks and ice creams
from 3.00pm onwards from the ‘PICNIC AREA KIOSK’ only.
As we do not charge an entrance fee we make our income to support the farm from the café. We therefore request that the tables in the café are used for food purchased from the café only. We have an outside picnic area which all visitors are welcome to use or a separate indoor room area that can be hired for a group or party. Should you wish to hire the room please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are unable to accommodate large groups or birthday parties in the main cafe area.
Our farm shop offers a range of gifts and souvenirs, along with a selection of locally sourced produce, including jams, honey and fruit juice. We also stock a large selection of second hand children’s books, as well as animal feed and bedding such as hay, straw and sawdust. At certain times of year we also sell our own farm produce, including sausages, roasting joints and eggs.
THE CAFE DOES NOT HAVE A MICROWAVE TO REHEAT BABY FOOD
Food for our sheep, goats, alpaca and cows is available from a dispenser located on the main yard opposite Edna the Owl. It only accepts 50p coins, but change is available from the Information desk in the cafe and from the Kiosk in the Picnic Area. Please DO NOT feed our animals any other food apart from the farm animal feed as it may make them sick.
Thank you for your co-operation
