CAFÉ

Look for the Café Tolmen sign. We’re usually open for meals from 6pm whenever there’s an event at the Centre. Please call us on 01326 341353 to pre-book your meal.

The Tolmen  Centre  is a not-for-profit organisation entirely run by volunteer help – no-one gets paid for their time. This creates a rather special ethos around the place – and allows us to be ambitious in what we promote and undertake.
