This tiny cute shabby chic cafe is full of charm and homeliness with a menu to suit most. It’s set off a courtyard next to Edwinstowe Church where legend has it that Maid Marion and Robin Hood were married.

The tea choice from Novus is explained with an infusion card for how long your tea should infuse for and it comes with a Speculoos Belgian Biscuit.

Although not yet on the phone you can find The Village Kitchen through your satnav at Unit 7, Church Farm, Edwinstowe, Nottingham, NG21 9NJ. Parking is easy as it has a car park behind it. Good luck to Lucy, I am sure she will do very well in her new venture.

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.
