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.

Found this by accident when deciding on a Sunday morning walk. Had been told about the Flitch Way so went to look for it and found this little gem! Delicious bacon sandwich and a good selection of home-made cakes on offer too. I'll definitely be going here again.

Great Cappuchino after a good walk along Flitch Way. Nice place to be. Haven't eaten here but the food looks very good

A perfect pit stop for hot coffee and a delicious brownie whilst out for a brisk Sunday walk. Very friendly service.

Visited here with my partner and nephew. It was a lovely day and we sat outside on the platform. We enjoyed coffee/hot chocolate and a cake each which was good value for money!

Found this super cafe a former station booking hall by accident, looking for a place to park for my first cycle ride along the Flitch Way, after a 20k Sunday morning ride stopped here and orderd door step bacon sandwich.

Thick slices of freshly cut bread, back bacon and local tip tree sweet fruity brown sauce with piping hot pot of earl gray tea, just fantastic, will be riding this way again.

There is also a spended range of cakes and brownies, if weather is wet you can use the Railway Carriage Museum carriage free of charge although this is not part of the cafe but well worth a visit.
