The Cafe by the Lake

The Cafe by the Lake is open for drinks, cakes, pastries, hot food and snacks throughout the week. Throughout the summer we are open in the evening for regular feature nights such as, fish & chips, wood-fired pizza and mouth watering Sumners-own burgers.

The Cafe by the Lake is CARD ONLY. 

The Cafe by the Lake 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.

A refreshingly crisp white wine on the decking overlooking the Sumners Lake or something a bit more warming during the winter, inside the cosy Safari Tent. Our licensed bar has lager, beer, cider, and local ales, as well as an extensive wine and spirit selection.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Well behaved dogs are welcome in all parts of the cafe.
