A great place to come after a walk through Malvern and Brueton Parks. Staff are always friendly and helpful, coffee good, jacket potatoes excellent. The café also is the entrance to the lovely wildlife centre, which is great to wander around, especially with young children.

One of my favourite places for a coffee & a snack........however prices seem to be going up lately, which is a shame as the place and its surroundings have so much potential. Must see........the beautiful pool behind the cafe, complete with nesting herons !
