The Cafe by the Lake is family run cafe, bar and restaurant at Sumners Ponds in the quaint picturesque village of Barns Green. We are open to all, including day visitors, from 8.00am each day serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, snacks and ice cream. Tuesday to Sunday our bar and restaurant is open until 10.30pm serving evening meals. See the current opening times below.
Enjoy a full English breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea on the decking overlooking the Sumners Lake, or something a bit more warming, during the winter, inside the cosy restaurant. Home cooked meals are also available in the evenings on Tuesday - Sunday nights as well as drinks from the bar. Our licensed bar has Peroni and Kozel on draught with a wide selection of other bottled lagers and ciders, an extensive wine and spirit selection and local ales both on draught and bottled. Live music and quiz nights as well as other larger events are planned throughout the year. Please see the events page.
Sunday roasts are back every Sunday at lunch and dinner time. All menus can be viewed by choosing one from the list to the right.
We look forward to welcoming you.
