Coronavirus: Please note that revised opening times and restrictions on access to the working watermill and cafe remain in place.

We are open for the sale of flour, bread, takeaway savoury and sweet baked goods, teas and coffees.

We are working hard to make sure that all our volunteers, staff, and customers stay safe. The size and layout of our café premises and the old mill building make it extremely difficult to allow general public access. 

Therefore, the cafe is currently operating a take-away service and limited seating based on a first come, first servced basis. We are not offering any tours of the Mill or access to the gardens.

Open Tuesday-Sunday 10am-4pm

Our Bread

We are a small artisan bakery and members of The Real Bread Campaign. This means our bread is made without additives and using long, slow fermentation methods. We use flour produced on site where possible, and source white and granary flours from Shipton Mill who also stone grind. We do not currently make gluten free bread. All of our breads contain GLUTEN

In 2019 we featured in Europe’s Best Bakeries by Sarah Guy, and were County Winner for Powys at the National Bakery Awards.

Guest Chef Nights

Throughout the year we have 'pop up' restaurants and encourage local chefs to bring their latest ideas to our table. Over the years we have  hosted authentic Greek gastronomy, outstanding Italian feasts and even menus built around food foraged in the local area. Our guest chef nights do not have an open bar, however you can bring your own bottle: with no corkage charge.
