Please note: From Monday 19th to Thursday 22nd February our kitchen will be closed for a refurbishment so we will therefore not be able to offer our usual menu. Instead we will be offering a reduced menu. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Our limited menu over this period is available here: REDUCED MENU. The bar, hot and cold drinks and cakes will be available throughout our usual opening times.
The Cafe by the Lake, restaurant and bar is positioned on the beautiful Sumners Lake 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 and dinner. Food service is from 8am and last orders are 11.15am for breakfast, 12 midday until 3pm for lunch and dinner 6pm until 9pm when open.
Our team of chefs have created an enticing and delicious menu. 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. Our licensed bar has lager, beer and cider on draught with a wide selection of other bottled products, 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.
Granny Betty's Afternoon Tea is available from 3pm on Fridays, Saturday and Sundays. This special menu is dedicated to the lady that helped found Sumners Ponds. Booking is required so please let us know at least 24 hours before hand.
We look forward to welcoming you.
Well behaved dogs are welcome in all parts of the restaurant and bar.
