About Us

Our Community Cafe is not a commercial cafe, it is there to serve the needs of the community. Our Development Worker spends three days a week in the Cafe and is always on hand to help out with anything you may need. From a cuppa and a chat to help with any personal issues you may be facing, the staff are there to oversee the delivery of community activities. We aim to reduce social and rural isolation and improve our members’ holistic health. From lifting moods to dealing with the Department of Work and Pensions, our Community Cafe is a safe space for all.

Family Discount Scheme

Our Family discount scheme gives families signed up the option of BOGOF on Children’s meals during school holidays. During term time, you get 10% off your bill on Monday and Friday.

Over 60's Loyalty Scheme

We run a number of different schemes to support members of the community; our Senior Discount scheme gives members 10% off their bill. This does not apply on a Wednesday.

Why Choose Us?

Keeping it local

We use suppliers in and around Cockfield who source their products locally to help businesses in the region…Bolams for meat, Mattisons for our Bakery and everything else is homemade!

Our charitable outcomes

When you purchase food and drinks from our cafe, the proceeds help us to continue the work we do for the local community by providing vital resources.
