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 home made breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as teas and coffees, soft drinks, home-made cakes, local ice-cream, filled baguettes and wraps, salads, soups, home-made 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.
Seating is available for up to 30 in the cafe and there are tables outside on the terrace and in the orchard.
We work hard to only use local, seasonal, fairtrade and organic ingredients where possible.
To make a booking for meals or an event please call us on 01805 601778 during cafe opening hours.
Our suppliers include:
Essential Trading - the Bristol based ethical co-operative supplying a range of organic and fairtrade ingredients including coffee beans, chocolate bars, organic drinks, crisps, olive oil, olives etc.
Local Meat - Torrington based butcher, Steve Gladwin, sources all our meat from Devon and Cornwall farms and makes excellent sausages.
Salad crops and vegetables in season - The Jolly Gardner provides us with some very local salads (about a ¼ mile up the road). More local salads, herbs and vegetables (including luscious basil and coriander) are also supplied by Shanti Smallwood who runs Old Chapel Organics near Petrockstowe - only 4 miles away.
Other fresh fruit and vegetables are supplied by the Stacey family at Xanadu in Torrington.
Local Ciders and Ales - we always have a range of west country ciders available from suppliers such as Winkleigh Cider (the old Inch's Devon cider maker), Westlake with organic cider from just 10 miles away and Wilkins Cider from Somerset, made by the original rock and roll cider maker Roger Wilkins (as drunk by Joe Strummer, Banksy, John Liden and Nicholas Cage!).
The Forge Brewery in nearby Hartland produces a lovely range of real ales ranging from the richly flavoured IPA to the light summery Hartland Blonde and the award-winning Litehouse.
