Our Coffee Shop


We make coffee because we love it. We love cake even more. We only make food that we love; it includes lots of vegetarian and vegan options. And we serve it all with passion. If it's not for you, then that's ok.

The Green Wood Centre, Coalbrookdale, where we are located, was built in 1998 as an energy-efficient and sustainably sourced education and office facility by The Green Wood Trust. A café was added a while later which we took over as a small family-run business in 2016 after years of searching for the perfect location. The site is the home of The Small Woods Association, and we're sure you'll love this unique woodland location as much as we do. 

We look forward to welcoming you to our coffee shop retreat

We're aware of some SatNavs directing users to a nearby 'Station Road' in Madeley, Telford. If you find yourselves lost, use postcode TF8 7EG which will take you to Dale End Car Park near the south end of Station Road. From here you can park and walk up the road or follow the signs for 'Green Wood Centre/Small Woods/The Green Wood Café' to park here on-site. 

Alternatively, good old fashioned maps work well too...
