Yarde Orchard Cafe
Yarde Orchard Cafe
We are now closed until April 2015
but look out for our special event nights in
November and December 2014!
Yarde Orchard Cafe was converted from a former turkey shed which had previously been a sailor's dormitory in Plymouth! Located right alongside the family friendly Tarka Trail cycle route, deep in the beautiful North Devon countryside. The cafe offers organic and fairtrade teas and coffees, soft drinks, organic home-made cakes, local ice-cream, filled baguettes and wraps, soups, organic hand stretched stonebaked pizza, nachos and a range of specials made on the premises.
We have a licensed bar offering local real ales, westcountry ciders and a small selection of wines.
We work hard to only use local, seasonal, fairtrade and organic ingredients where possible.
Seating is available for up to 30 in the cafe and there are tables outside on the veranda and in the orchard.
To make a booking for meals or an event please call us on 01805 601778 during cafe opening hours,
