There’s plenty of seating inside, although for larger groups we’d recommend booking ahead, especially at weekends. Outside there’s a good number of seats in their garden terrace with superb views


Set in west Herefordshire, not far from the Welsh border, we’re just 13 miles west of Leominster and 12 miles north-east of the famous book and riverside town of Hay-on-Wye (certainly worth cycling to post cake-stop)

Nestled within the rural Herefordshire countryside is a rustic and quirky cafe set in a fabulously restored barn beside the impressive Penrhos Court hotel, once described by AA Gill as “a breathtakingly beautiful small hotel, organically folded into some of the most pretty and fibrous country in England”.

Breakfast is served until 12 and includes a filling veggie or English breakfast alongside bacon and/or sausage filled baps and toasted teacakes.

From midday there’s a superb selection of seasonal lunch options including; eggs Royale, black pudding eggs Benedict, Hereford beef (or veggie) burger, fish finger sandwich or a toasted BLT. There’s also a range of jacket potatoes and homemade soup too.

On the counter you’ll find a small selection of tempting cakes where during our visit these featured a carrot, Victoria sponge and zesty jaffa orange slice.

You simply cannot be amazed by their spectacular and lovingly kept enclosed rear garden which provides plenty of seating and hammocks overlooking this stupendous building. Bikes are most welcome and can be brought into the garden from the side gate.

Note: For those nearby in the evenings, you can enjoy a laid-back, candle-lit evening meal from their a la carte menu, available Thursday, Friday and Saturday between 18:30 – 23:00.
