The Green Wood Cafe

About Us


The Green Wood Cafe - by Coffee with Soul & Gorge Grub

We’re a family-run business; Jody-Lea (the Daughter), Jason (the Dad) & Michelle (the Mum), surrounded by our ace and ever growing team. We moved into the coffee shop at The Green Wood Centre in 2016, after years of looking for the perfect location. The rest of the site here is the national HQ of The Small Woods Association, and we're sure you'll love this unique woodland location as much as we do.

In 2019 we split our business identities to help us focus on our core elements & to avoid confusion as we expand into other locations. Coffee with Soul is the coffee shop side of our business, originally operating as (and from) the Green Wood Café, Coalbrookdale. Same magic, new name. 👌

Gorge Grub is the food side of our business, including our daytime brunch menu but also our new, evolving evening tapas & street food. As part of our expansion we’re looking for additional location(s) for either Coffee with Soul and/or Gorge Grub. 👀

What’s On

Here is a quick overview of our regular events at the coffee shop:

  • Late Night Opening - we’re now open 5-9pm every Friday night (as the new standard) with a tapas-style menu, beers by the local Coracle Micropub, wine and sweet treats. N.B This is in place of our previous Street Food Night and Hobby Night events! No need to book - all are welcome. Takeaway is also available. This is ‘phase 1’ of our sister business, Gorge Grub… Follow our socials (FB / Tw / I @gorgegrub) for updates!

  • Sunday Brunch Live at the Lodge: brunch, coffee, cake and smooth sounds from a live band/artist... every few Sundays, check our calendar for dates!
