Where can we buy groceries?
In the village of Willingham there is a Co-op, a One Stop shop, a Bakery and a Farm Shop which is great for fresh fruit and vegetables, I don't believe they sell any meat.
In the village of Bar Hill (at the A14 exit to Willingham) there is a Tesco Extra which has a lot of vegan options.
You also have the option of ordering your groceries to be delivered to the site between 12pm - 4pm on arrival day and we will pop them away for you. The post code is CB24 5JL.
Can we order takeaways?
Absolutely. The Royal Bengal in Willingham and The Porterhouse pub both offer takeaway menu's on their website. There is also a Thai takeaway open Sunday to Wednesday in the village that has a great vegan menu.
What about cafes and Pubs?
Willingham has a great cafe at Willingham Auction House, they also have a bar called Lot 25 for evening drinks undercover but outside.
The Looking Glass Cafe is in a quirky industrial estate housing the village pet shop and several other local businesses, gyms and hairdressers. The cafe serves lovely vegan cakes and snacks.
The Porterhouse is a great village pub with a Tipi in the garden for undercover outdoor dining too.
The Duke of Wellington doesn't currently serve food, but has a large dog friendly beer garden and often has live music evenings and visiting food trucks.
The Bank Micropub is what it says on the tin! A tiny pub in an old bank. It serves great ales and ciders from local producers.
