There's a pop up cafe on the weekends where you can enjoy refreshments after your walk.
If you fancy a pub lunch one nice idea is to head to nearby Great Shelford. Here you'll find The Square and Compasses, a splendid village pub serving traditional English food. There's a cosy interior and a nice garden area for warmer days. They are located on the High Street at postcode CB22 5EH.
The Plough is another good option in the village. They have a pizza oven outside in the garden area where you can relax on warmer days. You can find them on the High Street at postcode CB22 5EH for your sat navs.
The woodland and parkland trails are ideal for dog walking so you'll probably bump into other owners on your visit. The Plough pub mentioned above is also dog friendly.
