Cafe closed

Café in the Park

Due to the coronavirus outbreak and to encourage social responsibility, we have temporarily closed the Café for all services (sit in/out and take away). We hope this will ensure the well being of our staff and customers and that a step such as this will allow us to see you all again very soon. Thanks for all your support now and in the future. Pauline, Eleanor and all the Café in The Park team.

Café in the Park is situated in Stamford Park close to the children's playground and is at the heart of The Counselling & Family Centre. We're a hub for the local community- a great place to meet up for a tasty meal or just a coffee and a chat. Or simply grab your lunch to go!

All profit from our café is rolled straight back into providing further services for the community. By enjoying a drink and a bite to eat in our café, you will be helping to support the 1 in 4 of us in Britain today who will experience emotional and mental health problems during our lifetime. So why not try our freshly ground coffees, teas, freshly made sandwiches, children's menu, ice creams and lollies, daily specials and a good selection of tasty snacks.

Can you help?

If you have more then 3 hours spare a week, we would love to have you as part of our café team! Find out more here.


The cafe is temporarily closed.
