We will take phoned in orders and customers may collect at the cafe entrance and pay contactless (if they do not wish to enter the cafe itself).

Rafters School Meals and catering

We provide school meals which are freshly prepared each day with the best ingredients for a nutritious and satisfying school lunch. 


We Believe that good days start with good coffee and good food

Our coffee is roasted to our own specification in small batches by a small artisan coffee roaster so it’s always fresh. Our coffee is a blend of four different beans and is a medium roast. All our food and baked goods are freshly prepared each day in house.
