Queenswood Café

Cafe at QueenswooodQueenswood Café is a licensed, family-run cafe located on the edge of the wood. It is owned by Zena and her husband Les and helped by her sisters Sharon and Becky. Their aim is to provide a warm welcome and excellent service.

The café is in a restored timber framed building which was once the Essex Arms Public House in Widemarsh Street, Hereford. The building was moved to Queenswood in 1989 following a public appeal which also included the purchase of the Tannery building from Leominster which now houses the Parks, Countryside and Leisure Development offices, the Information Centre and public toilets.
