Canal Trust Café, Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire

Come to this cafe in Bradford on Avon and you’ll feel any tension slip away from your shoulders; it’s so relaxed, so welcoming and it’s not just the canal side setting that makes it, it’s the friendly owners and the charming interiors. It’s not that big inside – it only seats about 20 people so you wouldn’t all want to go at once if the weather isn’t good but if the sun is out, it’s fine because they have a big garden outside.
Food is seasonal, mostly homemade but nothing too fancy; they do a very good burger, a choice of sandwiches and baguettes, and soup at lunchtimes, but they kick off well before that with hearty breakfasts, and of course they keep going all day with countless pots of tea and scrummy cakes
The Barbara McLellen narrow boat departs for trips just outside the café and they’ll do food for you to take on board; cake, cream tea, even a buffet if you’re chartering the boat for a special occasion.

Open: Every day 9.30am-4.30pm
