A fantastic family-run community cafe and farmshop in the pretty village of Failand, just 6 miles west of city of Bristol. Step inside and you’ll find a bustling cafe serving up fantastic coffee, homemade cakes and plenty of locally sourced savoury snacks, perfect for hungry cyclists exploring Somerset, Bristol and beyond.
Their homemade cakes include a fabulous honey & bergamot (citrus) slice, Biscoff millionaire shortbread, chocolate orange blondie, Oreo, caramel egg or salted caramel brownies, pastel de nata (Portuguese egg tart) and white chocolate and raspberry muffin to name a few. See our pictures for inspiration!
As for savoury snacks, they’re delicious and locally sourced, featuring scotch eggs from Nutts in Weston-super-Mare (give the ‘Scrumpy Janet’ a try featuring their famous Jungle Juice), pies & pasties from Chunks of Devon in Ottery St Mary and quiches from Brockley in Bristol. There’s also a changing daily menu of toasted paninis, all reasonably priced and served with tortilla crisps.
In terms of space, there’s a small amount seating available inside, in addition to a larger sheltered outdoor terrace with plenty of room to place your bikes whilst you rest those weary legs.
For those looking for nearby attractions, we’re just a stones throw from the Victorian Gothic Revival house and parkland of Tyntesfield, now owned by the National Trust and a fantastic way to spend an afternoon if not travelling by bike.
