VIDEO: Sweet success for Over Farm's new cafe

More than a year after opening, Over Farm Market in Gloucester is celebrating the success of its new cafe.

Punchline-Gloucester.com editor Mark Owen popped down to the farm shop this week to have a look round, accompanied by employee Jimmy Lane.

"We are over a year old now and it is going very well," said Jimmy.

"Everything here is made by the deli for our cafe in terms of food. We do breakfast until half 11, with lunch and brunch from then onwards until four o'clock.

"Our coffee is provided by Ethical Addictions in Kingsholm, with milk coming every morning from the Cotswolds so you couldn't get a fresher coffee.

"Our cakes are made by our deli teams and Boys Bakery sort us out with freshly baked goods."

When quizzed about how business had been since the covid restrictions eased, he added: "It has been good.

"We have a lot of local people from Highnam always popping down. We are in such a nice little spot between Bristol and the Forest of Dean which provides a nice meeting hub.

"We have a lot of regulars that come by now who are meeting family and friends, for a coffee and to relax."

The old coffee shop used to be upstairs, which has now been transformed into offices.

The new area is said to be much more open, wheelchair accessible with no steps to negotiate, as well as having much better toilet facilities.

"Our produce is either made here, or sourced locally - you can't get better than that," added Mr Lane.

Watch the video below for a walk-around tour of the farm shop.

The cafe is open 9am - 4pm daily, serving everything from hot drinks and food to smoothies, milkshakes and cakes.
