the nestVeranda cafe is open smile

…with a few tweaks / changes from the ‘old normal’ but, don’t worry , you’ll find the same friendly faces, excellent service and delicious freshly prepared and cooked food along with your favourite nest coffees!

We are working on the nestcafébar and will hopefuly be OPEN soon- ‘watch this space’


Initially we must ask you to BOOK AHEAD

Simply call 01531 670 816 or pop in a day or so beforehand, please note, we will ask for a £5 minimum spend/reservation fee to be set against your bill (an online system is on the horizon; we will keep you posted)

When you arrive, we will meet you at the door, take you to your seats…  take your order and serve you at your table… no more queueing at the tills or uncertainty about getting a seat!

NB we are finding it hard to cope with drop-ins so please do try to book ahead, we are unfortunately having to turn people away.

Reimagined Spaces, with social distancing and strict health and safety measures to keep both you and our teams safe, our capacity has shrunk to 20 tables divided between our upgraded veranda and the original café area… outside the nestingbox garden and orchards are open for takeout picnics too… again save yourself from queues and delays by booking your picnic ahead and enjoy our lovely little corner of Herefordshire…

Welcome back!

The Ferme

Introducing the fermentation wonders of, Malvern based The Ferme – bringing life to your food, health to your gut and making your microbiome smile!

Andy & Michelle source quality, local produce to make delicious, raw and live sauerkraut, kimchi and pickles. As well as tasting great their ferments are a natural probiotic that can help improve digestion and immune function and also reduce inflammation and allergies (56g of live sauerkraut has more probiotics than a bottle of 100 count probiotics). They compliment many foods and will very quickly make every meal a daily feast. With a variety of flavours you are bound to find a Ferme favourite.

Severn Spots British Charcuterie

We produce award winning free-range British charcuterie made in Worcester. Only quality ingredients and free-range pork are used to create our salamis and chorizo. They are all made by hand and then air dried for up to 5 weeks until they are ready to eat. We are proud to be SALSA registered, meeting high standards in food safety. 

GREAT TASTE AWARDS 2019: We are delighted that several of our charcuterie, salami and chorizo won Great Taste Awards.  Our Tuscan Salami and Chorizo won 2 stars each; and Sopressata Salami, Walnut Sticks and Blueberry Sticks won 1 star each!

High animal welfare standards are very important to us. Therefore only use one quality pork supplier, Packington Pork, who are a RSPCA accredited farm – all of their pigs are free-range.

A destination for everyone…

with acres of reclaimed farmland, a beautifull mixed fruit orchard, wildflower meadow, footpaths and childrens area thenest is the perfect spot to catch up with friends, family and of course you must bring the dogs!

Local Suppliers

We pride ourselves on supporting the many award winning local suppliers we are blessed to be surrounded by… Wilce’s supply a great range of bottled ciders, our own label ACV (apple cider vinegar) and the draught for the cafe bar…  loads other Cider makers are of course featured at thenest

Our fabulous ‘Henry’

Double height, 12.8m diameter, canvas and wood magnificence.. theHenry lives in the corner of our mixed fruit orchard from Easter ’till October.  Initially seen as a wedding venue, theHenry is just a lovely welcoming space that lends its self to all manner of gatherings from brownies sleepovers, to concert hall seating 120, feast nights to family picnics, craft workshops to exhibitions 

Never fails to delight

This is one of my regular places to visit for brunch, lunch or tea and it never fails to deliver despite expanding and getting busier. They have a great orchard to walk the dog and you can take your dog in if its good. Staff are amazing and the best coffee around.

Tasty, fresh, local food

We stopped for lunch. I had a sage and onion scotch egg and salad, my son had a warm, freshly made sausage roll also with salad. Delicious. We both finished our plates. A good pot of tea and all at a reasonable price. A lovely deli to look round and buy presents to take home

Great little deli and the home of the great scotch egg company

 A big must visit if you’re anywhere near here good home cooked food and if your a fan of scotch eggs then a must as they have so many different types also the added bonus of a brilliant garden plant centre. Plenty of seating inside and out but can be busy at peak times highly recommended and a very friendly place

Great place to visit

 Took mum and dad out for a drive and ended up at the Nest and I’m really glad we went. It’s a garden center but different. The staff are friendly and polite, more than willing to give advice and expertise. The restaurant is well worth a visit, the food is all freshly prepared and their range of scotch eggs is amazing. And they don’t rip you off. Dogs are allowed which is brilliant, even in the restaurant, there are lots of tables both inside and out. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to The Nest and will definitely be going back again.
