We have a collection of cafés, not a chain, each unique but with common themes, not least the commitment to perfection in our coffee and our whole-foods kitchens.

All Larder cafés operate a relaxed counter service and we do not take regular table bookings, though we’ve become known for our rough-cut afternoon teas for which bookings are required.

We offer private hire with catering at all venues and also cater off-site, please check our private hire page for more information.
