You Can Flourish, our vegetarian/vegan cafe, is open for lunch and refreshments on Wednesdays from 11am to 2.30pm. Linda serves home made soups, quiche, chilli, curries, accompanied by home made bread and cake, and freshly brewed coffees and hot drinks. 

Home made bread also available if ordered from Linda in advance on 07576 744528 or email

You Can Flourish is a social enterprise which works with marginalised people to increase their skills and confidence around cooking, eating and literacy so they learn while you eat.

Dog walkers, and their dogs, are welcome – there’s an indoor dog friendly seating space next to the cafe.

We are currently looking for other people who might be interested in running the cafe on other days. If you are please email
