Great food that doesn’t cost the earth. See what’s on the menu!

The Hornbeam Café is open 10am – 5pm Tuesday to Sunday (except Thursday from 11.30am), and provides a relaxing space on a busy street corner. DSC_4216

We serve food that’s vegetarian using local, organic and fairly traded ingredients as much as we can.

Our chef team –Norman Loves – use fresh fruit and veg from East Anglian farmers, the same produce which is also for sale at the Saturday market stall and in the box scheme on Wednesdays.

.The cafe also sells:

  • Our organic sourdough bread is homemade in the cafe, and on Wednesdays we have whole loaves of Today Bread ( for sale’.  And preserves made from local organic produce.
  • refills for environmentally friendly household cleaning and washing liquids.

The cafe hosts a knitting, sewing and crafts group, every Thursday from 2-5pm. £1.50 entrance gets you a cup of tea, lots of practical help and advice for your craft projects and a place to chat while you knit.


Our menu is constantly changing with the seasons so your feedback and ideas are welcome – let us know what you think of what’s on offer! We can cater for allergies and special diets so let us know if you have particular requirements.

We also offer catering for meetings and events in the Hornbeam or elsewhere.


We are supported by volunteers and we are always keen to welcome new people – let us know if you’re interested!
