Our Story

Where It All Began

Welcome to Cartgate Lodge Café managed by Jill and Chris.

Chris and his wife Jill proudly run Cartgate independently with the aim to provide a truly refreshing change from the alternative roadside stops.  Family run, home cooked food and great customer service. Its what make us unique and has our customers returning time after time.

We are lucky to have an amazing team working with us and believe that we are the little hidden gem that road users are looking for ….

Great Food * Friendly Service * Parking * Shade * Grassy Space * Free WiFi *  Disabled, Family and Dog Friendly

We welcome customer feedback and look forward to seeing you soon.

Built by Ourselves

Cartgate Lodge Café was built from scratch by ourselves!

A true labour of love! A former Farmer, Chris used his Agricultural engineering skills and with the help of a few friends, and a lot of hard work, Cartgate Lodge Café was created.
