Locally sourced, freshly prepared, delicious, seasonal and healthy – what’s not to love?

At Jordans Mill we pride ourselves on serving outstanding food in a very special location. Our Riverside Café serves breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and snacks all year round. On a sunny day there’s nothing better than sitting on our terrace watching the world (and the water) go by, and if the weather isn’t playing ball we still have space for over 100 diners inside.

Where possible, we source as much of our food as possible from nearby suppliers to provide fresh ingredients for our dishes, support these local producers and also help reduce food miles. There’s usually a chance for you to try food straight from the Mill Gardens too as we harvest our garden fruits and vegetables for use in the café.

Children are always welcome, with colouring to keep them entertained and a child-friendly menu including a build-your-own lunchbox option and a child-sized cooked breakfast.

Breakfast is served from 9am until 11am and lunch is served from 12pm until 3pm daily.

Afternoon Tea is served between 2.30pm and 4pm and must be prebooked at least 24 hours in advance with a 50% deposit payable at the time of booking. Please call 01767 603940 to book. Gift Vouchers are also available, please click here to purchase online. 

Our menu changes with the seasons and daily specials are also available.  If you fancy something lighter we’re famous for our scones and have a delectable range of cakes.

On Thursday 29th June, join us for a special curry evening with a delicious three course feast being served between 6pm and 9pm. Tables for this special menu must be booked in advance, with a £10 pp deposit payable on booking, please email joy.buchanan@jordansmill.com. View the menu here.
