The vestry CAFE
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls ... please say hello to our buddies Nicola and Adam Rogers who are your hosts at Vestry Cafe.
If you’re looking for an idyllic location, a rich, powerful coffee (or a deluxe hot choc) and a comprehensive menu of affordable, scrummy homemade food you’ve found the perfect place.
Vestry Café opened its doors in March 2016 and has quickly established a keen and loyal following of diners and drinkers who are passionate about Nicola’s super-tasty nosh. Rachel’s cakes are back – her legendary macaroons, opulent chocolate brownies, flapjacks and always a cutting-cake or two made with the very finest of ingredients and perfectly baked each morning. Vestry Cafe serves truly yummy, sensibly-priced food for meat-eaters and veggies alike.
If savoury options are your thing there’s bacon, sausage and potato hash (topped with a poached egg) for hungry tums, flatbreads with a variety of veggie and non-veggie toppings and a range of breakfast options and filled or toasted sandwiches.
For the warmer months we’re offering opulent homemade quiche accompanied by flavour-packed salads or summer garden soups and chowders. And for hungrier tums there’s always the loaded flatbreads, halloumi fries or a decadently indulgent croque-monsieur. Look out for the specials boards and summertime tasties – cream teas, ice cream sundaes and Nicola’s imaginative sweet sandwich of strawberry, banana and clotted cream (she promises they’re mouthwateringly delish!).
We have a safe, private garden in which to relax and fill your boots from breakfast to tea-time but if the weather’s a bit iffy there’s a warm welcome inside with captivating exhibitions throughout the chapel and a selection of toys and books to keep little people occupied and happy.
We look forward to seeing you! If you have a large party coming along why not book a table in advance by calling Vestry Café on 01453 861177
New Opening Hours
The Vestry is open Thursday until Saturday from 9am until 4pm.
Following the Covid-19 lockdown, our "new normal" sees the cafe spreading out throughout the ground floor of the chapel and making good use of the beautiful enclosed garden space at Prema. We have a new one-way system in place to keep you safe as well as additional dining spaces in the Old Schoolroom and the Old Pottery (both at the back of the chapel) which are beautifully airy and naturally ventilated; meaning that we've got your comfort and safety covered at all times! The garden will have plenty of table and dining space and we have gazebos on hand so that you can enjoy meeting up with your friends whatever the weather.
For those who still need or wish to shield, we're using the Old Pottery as a dining space for a group/'bubble' booking of between 4-6 people and if you're after a table for just two of you, there's the Secret Garden - ideal for coffee and cake and tucked away on the east elevation of the chapel - a private space to keep you safe. If you wish to use either of the shielding spaces then prior booking is essential.
We'd recommend that you book a table to avoid disappointment. To book, call Nicola and team on 01453 861177 or drop us an email at email@example.com
We have missed seeing all of you and we're feeling super excited about opening up again! We've put many measures in place to keep you and yours safe while you're visiting us. Do let us know how the new systems are working for you and please bear with us while we all adjust to the new version of normal. You'll notice that we're now only open from Thursday to Saturday - we hope to extend the number of days in September.
In spite of the social distancing measures, the one-way system, the face masks and the cleaning and sanitizing, we're the same Vestry Cafe which brings you delicious, fresh food at affordable prices alongside great coffee and opulent cakes!
Here's looking forward to seeing you very soon.
