Oak Mead Café
Tim and Trish are just coming to the end of their first season at Oakdown, and from the feedback and Trip Advisor reviews, it’s been a good one!
Between 1st October and 4th November the opening times will be as follows….
Café – 9am – 7pm (5pm on Sundays)
Shop – 8.30 – 7pm (5pm on Sundays)
Golf – 8.30 – 7pm (5pm on Sundays)
They are still cooking the ever popular Oakdown full English breakfast and have a wide choice of hot and cold food available – including Roll Over hot dogs, tasty cakes, made to order paninis, artisan pizzas and plenty more. They are also serving barista style coffees and various teas.
No description of Oak Mead Café would be complete without mentioning the Italian Gelato which Tim and Trish make on-site.
NOTE – The Oakmead Café and Shop will be closing on Sunday 4th November and will not re-open until March 2019.
Opened on May 1st 2006 by District Councillor Mike Green, the Coffee Lodge offers a warm welcome and somewhere to relax with a range of coffees, teas and cold drinks together with a tempting selection of cakes, pasties, toasted sandwiches, cold sandwiches and light snacks.
Our centrally positioned play area’s have swings, climbing frames many new items, an embankment slide, and our pride and joy is a fantasticplay tower-this gives hours of play pleasure, all equipment is on a modern safety surfaces.
One play area is on our main park and the second one is on Beech Grove adjacent to the café and Oak mead Golf.
A quiet room is set aside in our amenity building for those wishing to watch TV or play pool or table football.
We also have a “borrow/lend” book section for you to browse.
Oakdown now offers a network of wifi repeaters around the Park. Oakdown has made a large investment into this project, having had many obstacles to jump its been a timely process, the wifi network is supplied via a satellite location on the Park, internet speeds from the local exchange just couldn’t cope with the demand, we are currently installing extra repeaters in areas where there is limited coverage, so be sure to check the availability before purchasing a voucher. (Due to Oakdown’s Rural setting signal strength can be intermittent)
Oak Mead Family Golf and Recreation Area is immediately opposite Oakdown to the west – the meadow which has the Field Trail leading to the Donkey Sanctuary on its northern boundary and our Victorian Reed Bed and Bird Hide in the south west corner. Oak Mead has been planned from the very start as a family attraction and opened for all to enjoy in Summer 2003. The course is a 9 hole par 3 and 748 yards long.
The Golf is open all year round and is OPEN TO NON RESIDENTS. Please pay at the shop (or reception if the café is closed) and collect your equipment (if required) and a score card
