- Please respect our social distancing measures and do respect our staff who will be doing their very best in these difficult times. 

All about the food…

Stubbings Café opened in 2011 and has quickly developed an excellent reputation for breakfasts, lunches and afternoon teas served in our glasshouse building overlooking our lovely 18th Century Grade II listed walled garden.

We are a licensed premises so you can accompany your lunch with a some wine, beer or bubbles!  SORRY - the sale of Alcohol is temporarily suspended.

A covered, south-facing decking area provides an ideal outside spot for dog walkers to enjoy the Café. In addition we have a small seating area within the plants in the walled garden for those willing to brave the English weather.

Our Head Chef, Luigi Perrotta, and all of the team look forward to welcoming you to Stubbings soon.

Coach Parties:  NOT ALLOWED AT THE PRESENT TIME. If you are planning to visit us with a party of 15 plus people, please note that prior notification is required.  This is because our Café is very busy and we want to ensure that we have all the arrangements in place to make your visit a smooth and enjoyable experience. 

 Please call us on 01628 825454 regarding any initial enquiries.

Freshly prepared...


We are pleased to use UE Coffee as our fresh coffee supplier.

We love UE Coffee because:-

~ Their roastery is local (in Witney, Oxon) and therefore can deliver very fresh coffee in small batches on a regular basis.
~ They are UK agents for Marzocco, one of the finest Italian coffee machine manufacturers (and yes - we have a Marzocco...)
~ They only source the very highest grade beans from small farms, estates and cooperatives that are sustainably and ethically managed with high standards of agricultural practices.
~ Their coffee is amazing! 

Breakfasts: (served Monday to Friday until 11.45am)

We offer a breakfast menu serving a full range of breakfast options. Our Stubbings breakfast offers that guilty pleasure of sausages, bacon, eggs, beans, etc. but without the deep-fat frying. In addition you will find porridge, breakfast sandwiches, Avocado and poached eggs on sourdough etc, as well as the house favourite - our lovely smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.

We can provide our whole breakfast menu gluten free using gluten free bread.  Unfortunately, our sausages are not gluten free but these can be substituted with an alternative from the menu.

Dairy free can be provided with a range of options, from our full English Breakfast to scrambled eggs, smashed avocado etc.  Please notify us when placing your order at the till.

Lunches: (served until 3.00pm)

Choose from a range of daily specials including a fresh daily soup, quiches, salads, pies, and paninis, alongside classic baked potatoes, and hot or cold sandwiches.  Our choice always ensures there's something on the menu that will tickle your fancy.
