Our Café Is Now OPEN!

NOW OPEN EVERY DAY
9:00 – 16:00

With extra protective measures in place (see the list here) we look forward to welcoming you back for a coffee and cake, a hearty lunch or a cold drink or two.

Wells Maltings Café and Bar is dedicated to providing the best of local produce and home-cooked food. Many of our baked goods are made on site by our own café team.

We are dedicated to using local suppliers as much as possible, including Arthur Howell butchers, Walsingham Farm Shop, who make our fabulous pies, South East Coffee from Norwich, Malt Coast beer from just down the road at Branthill Farm and Adnams beer from just over the border in Suffolk.

Latest regulations mean that face coverings must be worn when visiting us, but once you are seated in the light and airy café you can remove. We have maximised our capacity in the café at 2m social distance, and everything is now table service only. We don’t take bookings, but we will do our best to find you a table.

Your Support is Even More Vital

Lockdown had a massive negative impact on our income streams. We receive no regular funding – money from tickets, coffees, sales of pictures, space hires etc represents over 80% of our income. We need to be open and trading to survive.

Emergency funding will help, but times are challenging. Can you offer your support? Please consider becoming a Friend, a Patron, or making a donation. Every pound counts, and will keep us going.
