rest and refuel
At the 1856 Café
Forest adventures and fresh air mean that a rest and refuel stop at our 1856 café is a must for any trip to Hainault!
Set against a backdrop of stunning forest views our relaxed and informal café space inside the renovated 1856 barn is a perfect spot to grab a bite and we’ve got you covered whatever the time of day and whatever you’re craving.
A wide range of
Food and Drink
Choose from our selection of traditional and fairtrade herbal teas, artisan coffees or luxurious hot chocolate. We proudly serve Union Coffee which is certified as direct trade and each bean is roasted to perfection.
Alongside drinks we’ve got all kinds of homemade hot and cold food on offer from brunch, to lunch and on to afternoon tea.
Wherever we can, we support local suppliers and family run businesses. We use herbs produced by our farm and our lovely free-range eggs are picked up by our rangers and then used in our kitchen.
Come and grab a cuppa!
