The UK Government have applied an Avian Influenza Protection Zone across the UK. This means that we must close our Aviaries to the public until the restrictions are lifted.
We do NOT have this virus at Raystede but we are required to put in place a range of measures to protect our birds. We are still open and welcome visitors to the rest of the site – please book your ticket.

Café Raystede

Welcome to Café Raystede


Café Raystede is open and operating a table service inside and also in the seating areas outside. Come and enjoy your favourite dishes, or try one of our new ones! We are serving hot and cold food and drinks, snacks and wonderful cakes.

We also have a takeaway service which you will find at the side of the Café so you can enjoy a lovely snack or drink whilst taking in our fabulous views.

The café closes at 3.45pm so if you want a coffee or an ice cream for the journey home, don’t worry as the takeaway service is open until 4pm.

We have specials available every week. If you just fancy a nice warming hot drink after a walk around our site, come and enjoy our barista Lavazza coffees, they're very popular!

We offer extensive vegetarian and vegan options and can cater to any dietary requirements.

As such our policy is to be inclusive and cater for all sections of society, providing extensive vegetarian and vegan options whilst sourcing any meat and dairy from local, high welfare farming systems.

We also offer specific children's lunches as well as gluten free options.
