The Real Food Cafe has had an electric vehicle charger since 2018 but it was time for an upgrade.
We wanted to make sure that the customer experience and reliability of the facility are improved and remain consistent.
We're pleased to announce that our new FOR:EV charging station is fully operational fulfilling our EV charging service at the Café.
It's official, our chips are the best in the country.
On Tuesday 28th February our Founder and Director, Sarah Heward, travelled to London to attend the 2023 National Fish & Chip Awards Ceremony held by the Federation of Fish Friers.

On the day everyone in the Cafe was in suspense, waiting for the result to be announced and then it happened, we won!

Can you believe it’s almost twenty years since the beginning of our journey? We’ve come far since first setting foot in that abandoned Little Chef in 2004. We’ve lived through setbacks and many unprecedented challenges, especially in the last couple of years.
But no matter what life throws at us, no matter how hard things get, we are always looking ahead.
And so today, we’re excited to announce that the long-planned modernisation of our facilities starts in one week from Monday 23rd January. It is the first phase of three in a two-year-long programme running up to our Cafe’s 20th anniversary.
In November 2022 we reviewed Isle of Ely Produce's new variety of chipping potatoes called Babylon for the Chippy Chat magazine. A task we didn't take lightly and one we approached with enthusiasm. Thanks to our many years of chip frying experience, we quickly found the best temperature and ideal cooking time to fry these chips to perfection.

Our Cafe received an early Christmas present when the Great Outdoors Magazine announced the winners of their 2022 The Great Outdoors Reader Awards. We were thrilled to learn that our Tyndrum Cafe won the Walkers' Cafe/Restaurant of the Year category!
