Description: In 2009 Robert and Sarah Branch gave up their comfortable lives to begin their dream of owning their own cafe, and after many sleepness nights, blood, sweat and tears The Booking Hall Cafe was born! Situated next to the Flitch Way, the cafe now boasts an enviable reputation across the county for good food and a friendly smile. Over the years the family run business has grown to become the centre of Rayne's Community, now run by soon to be married Grace Branch and Joshua Meehan, what started as a simple cafe has become a centre for hiking, cycling and rambling clubs, a charity fundraiser, host to the famous Rayne music festival, home to Quirky Carrot Catering and a delight for any passer by or foodie thats been tempted by one of our famous Gourmet Sandwiches. So sit back, order a tea, a slice of cake or a door stop sandwich and watch the world go by... And of course Welcome to The Booking Hall Cafe.

This lovely cafe is in a perfect location on the Flitch Way for a short walk or cycle and then for a lively chat, tea, cake or more.

Highly recommended for families and cyclists - in fact everyone.

My husband and I will either walk or run down the Flitch Way and it's a lovely treat to stop here and enjoy a drink and a snack. You get a warm welcome upon arrival, and if you a dog walker, there is blankets, a water bowl and dog treats. I have enjoyed many slices of cakes here, with tea and each time it has been an enjoyable experience.
Toilet facilities are a bit basic, but servicable.
It will be even better once the railway carriage has been fully renovated.

Great service and warm welcolm. Fantastic sausage sandwiches and baps not the ordinary kind and gave a really lovely taste! Nice little quaint railway station cafe is lovely to walk along the flitch way walk on a sunny cold day so the sun is shining and a little chilly, the best time to walk it! Will always go back here.
