This cafe is hidden at the back of Highland Court Farm in an old mechanic’s workshop but it is anything from a greasy spoon. The food is high quality using fresh, local ingredients and the coffee and cafe are delicious! There are alcoholic drinks and a great selection of hot drinks too. We will stop here for a while to explore this fantastic hidden gem.

We will walk the remaining 1 mile to Bridge to finish our circular walk.
