Wokingham Half Marathon 2020

Is on again this year on Sunday 23rd February 2020 - weather permitting of course! We are open at The Farm Café as usual that day from 10am - you can reach us via Twyford Road (from Wokingham going towards Hurst) there are traffic lights in operation on this road and the race starts at 10am with the Kids Mini Mile at 10.10am. But after these times you can get through easily. You can also approach from Forest Road Binfield direction - there will be marshalls stationed at The Warren House roundabout - if runners are due or passing through that junction then be prepared to wait a little but I'm sure they will be lovely and accommodating as possible.


We wish all the participants a great race - have a super time and hope all the training pays off! To any spectators - you're welcome to come up to the Café for some well earned hot drinks or breakfast while you wait - be a shame not to! To the runners - we're here for you afterwards for a nice sit down and some good food if you need it! Less than a mile from the Race Start & Finish line - find us at RG40 5QY - easy walking distance from Cantley Park. x We are the nearest Café to the Wokingham Half Marathon, see you there!

5 Star Food Hygiene Award From Wokingham Council 


We've had a 5 rating every visit for the fourth time running  - and as each one lasts around 2 years - that's about 8 years we've been rated a 5 now! (We had a 4 way back in the beginning I think and then just got better ever since!) Established 2008 and still going strong! EHO visits are very in depth, they always come when you're mad busy (of course!) and they test every single part of your business. It's nerve racking as you work so hard to do everything right & it really matters to all the staff, but it's really satisfying in the end when your hard work is noticed & commended too! Very proud of our teams xx

Well done to Karen and all the team for their hard work and congratulations on your 5 rating.

March 2018 - **update** - April 2019 - Nominated Again! Winners - Silver Award - Thames Valley Hospitality - Best Breakfast 2019


Winners of the Thames Valley Hospitality Award 2018 - 'Best Breakfast 2018' 


Yes we couldn't quite believe it either when we received a phone call from the local press and then a local TV station, Thames Valley TV. Apparently our lovely customers had been voting in their thousands for us to win the Best Breakfast Award. We were short listed and invited along to the awards dinner - it was very plush & exciting! It was quite embarrassing to be nominated alongside some very well known hotels & restaurants, with only 2 other cafes in a category of many, I think we were all wondering what we were doing there! But no - it was a customer vote & ultimately their choice  - so the roof nearly blew off with all the cheers and screams as we were voted the "Winners of the Best Breakfast Category"! Our teams work so hard trying to bring quality, taste and finesse to what is essentially just breakfast & brunch - but they do it under immense pressure, hoards of customers and a very short time frame for service! They do an amazing job and this customer vote was really just rewards to show them their hard work is noted and appreciated. Well done team & thank you to Thames Valley Hospitality for running the awards and to Thames Valley TV for coming along & interviewing us - am sure it's on YouTube somewhere!! Our award now sits proudly in the Café, Thank you again xx
