We’re a family run café/tea room situated just off Bridport’s main street and handy for the market, shops and Arts Centre.
Our philosophy is simple: - we buy local produce and create delicious seasonal meals, healthy soups, hearty breakfasts, divine desserts and fabulous cakes. Virtually all our food is prepared on site from the biscotti treats served with Fairtrade organic coffee to the vegetarian tarts. We even cook the gammon and make the ice cream. And we’re proud to have won Best Café/Tearoom of the Year in 2008 and Gold standard in 2009 – awarded by Taste of the West. Our suppliers include Denhay for bacon and cheese, Washingpool Farm Shop for home-bred and outdoor- reared meat/sausages and Linton Meadow free range eggs.
As dedicated vegetarians we really do understand mushroom risotto syndrome! In fact, we’ve made it part of our mission, passion even, to provide scrumptious alternatives. So, please come and try our Sage Derby Cheese and Parsnip Roulade served with roast potatoes and fresh vegetables. With notice, we’re also happy to accommodate individual dietary needs and prepare wheat or dairy-free meals. The special dishes on our menu change daily and reflect the diversity of West Country fare from traditional Sunday lunch to creative vegetarian choices. The sample menu page shows exactly what our customers can expect.
We support the Slow Food Movement:- a non-profit, eco-gastronomic member-supported organization that was founded in 1989 to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world. For more information see www.slowfood.com.
The Green Yard Café is licensed to sell liquor. We stock a range of drinks including Lyme Bay Wines, Sheppy’s Cider, Tanglefoot Beer, Luscombe and Orchard Pig soft drinks.
So, we’re perfect for all occasions, a coffee with friends or family lunch. Even the dog’s welcome - we have a small courtyard garden area.
