Kingfisher Cafe @ The Wolseley Centre

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust's stunning Kingfisher Café at The Wolseley Centre HQ, near Rugeley, opened its doors as part of the centre’s major redevelopment in May 2019.

With amazing views over the lake at Wolseley to enrich the visitor experience, the café sells a range of fresh and delicious home-made hot meals, specials of the day, sandwiches and paninis, yummy cakes and a range of hot and cold drinks, including ethically sourced coffee and tea.

The food is made using locally sourced produce, and vegan and vegetarian options are also plentiful, with all appetites catered for! There is also a children's menu available for little kingfishers. 

Guests can unwind and enjoy views as they look out onto our 26 acre site from inside the cafe and also out on the decking area at the back. Brought your pooch with you for a walk? There is a designated area in the cafe for you to sit back and relax with your four legged friend as well as 2 seating areas outside they are welcome in.  

Money raised from the café helps our charity raise money for vital conservation work in Staffordshire. Why not pay us a visit? Our friendly and welcoming staff would love to welcome you!

You can download a copy of our menu below but there are new specials on offer every day.  We also run additional menus at Christmas and are soon to be running themed food days such as Vegan and Curry.
