The City Farm Café is a beautiful space set on the edge of Windmill Hill City Farm. It was reopened after a major expansion and refurbishment in May 2017. 50 guests can be comfortably seated at 10 separate tables, or 40 along two long tables for a banquet-style event. In the lighter summer evenings, it’s a bright, welcoming space and the doors can be left open to let the outside in. On darker nights we decorate it with twinkly lights and candles for a cosy glow. We’ve hosted birthday parties, theatrical performances, fundraisers, and even a wedding, complete with Ceilidh.
The space is also available for pop-ups and supper clubs, with use of our modern kitchen if required – get in touch to discuss your plans and we can work with you to come up with a suitable package.
For party hire, there are various options, depending on your requirements. The space is available to hire in the evenings only, from 6.00pm until 11.30pm. Earlier arrival times may be possible by prior arrangement.
