The Market Cafe
There has been a market at the cafe since it opened in 1964 but Ollie Chadwick and Steph Trafford took over the reins in 2017. The cafe offers a lovely, friendly environment whether you are kick starting your day with a ‘coffee to go’ , want to enjoy a leisurely lunch or afternoon tea and cake. The menu changes with the seasons and offers a variety of homemade soups, paninis, wraps and a legendary ‘Full English’. The Cafe is happy to take pre-orders to collect or they will deliver direct to you. The cakes, we have to say, are amazing. The apple cakes, chocolate chip cookies and homemade fudge being a particular favourite of ours. However, don’t take our word for it – come and visit to see (or taste) for yourselves.
About Ollie and Steph
Both have catering backgrounds and jumped on the opportunity to take ownership of the cafe in the summer of 2017. Steph, although our youngest trader, has 10 years of catering hospitality under her belt including supervising a hotel at the tender age of 21.
