Under the Greenwood Tree Cafe

The Visitor Centre's café is an independent family business run by Dorchester-born Sarah Key and her daughter Lydia.

Sarah is proud to only use free range eggs and source the majority of her products as locally as possible. Every morning they home bake cakes, scones, soups and produce jams, chutneys and cordials.

Sarah cooks as healthily as possible using rapeseed or olive oil and gluten free and vegetarian goodies are always available. A wide range of food is available, from healthy breakfasts, bacon sarnies and a full English to baguettes, light bites and typical English afternoon tea!

Dogs are welcomed into the café and as a big dog lover, Sarah is known to give out free gravy bones or biscuit treats.

Tables are available inside and outside on the decking area in front of the café as well as further out under the shade of Thorncombe's trees.
