The Cafe by the Creek is located on Oare Creek. We offer a wide range of hot and cold drinks along with light lunches and homemade cakes and bakes. We also offer afternoon tea with pre-booking.

The area surrounding Oare Creek is great for getting out and about and is very popular with walkers, cyclists, and bird watchers. We are dog-friendly so why not bring along your furry friend and explore the area.


We offer freshly made sandwiches and homemade soup, the flavours of which will vary day to day. In addition, we have a tried and tested selection of paninis and toasties available daily. Plus our very popular cakes, baked goods and scones, all prepared in our cafe kitchen.
