Wilf's Café

Much more than just
a Café!

Welcome to Wilf's Café

The Café is situated at the back of The Mill Yard by the river. It’s easy to find and is well worth the effort. Based in the old bobbin loft with some of the old line workings still in place. We have traditional seating plus a cosy sofa area inside and outside decking overlooking the river Kent for warmer days.

Our menu starts with stupendous traditional breakfasts, lovely lunches with daily specials, cakes, cream teas & much more. We bake our own bread & cakes, & cook nearly all our own food so we know what goes into it if you have any dietary needs.

" We popped our head in and asked if they were dog friendly. We were greeted with a warm smile and a reassurance that they were very dog friendly. Clean, bright, and welcoming! The food was fresh, nicely presented, and really reasonably priced. We were offered water for the dogs and generally felt very content there. Would highly recommend! "

" Really enjoyed our visit to Wilf's Cafe, meeting up for a family get together. The food was great, lots of interesting menu choices, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. My flat white coffee was way above average, can often be disappointing but not at Wilf's! And the lemon drizzle cake was absolutely the best I have ever tasted, including mine! We will definitely be back. "
