The Straw Bale Cafe and Farm Shop is now open seven days a week, 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Do you know why the ‘Straw Bale Cafe’ is called ‘The Straw Bale Cafe?’ Simple, it is built out of straw bales. If you don’t believe it, check out the framed panels on either side of the balcony doors, where the straw bales are clearly seen; they are also holding up the roof.

We want the Straw Bale to be one of the best cafes in Wigan…

…so fresh food is cooked daily by our team, using fruit, vegetables and salads mostly grown on the farm or from local suppliers. Customers tell us our, “food is excellent and the cakes divine.”

We pride ourselves in our wonderful service and our staff are hard working and friendly.

Our menu typically consists of home made soups. quiche, summer salads, sandwiches, toasties, paninis and jacket potatoes.

Daily specials

There are often daily specials when we have been inspired by whatever we have growing fresh in the market garden.

We create a mouthwatering range of home made cakes and scones using organic flour. Our cakes are all home made and baked here in the Straw Bale Cafe’s Kitchen.

Do you think we could be the best cafe in Wigan?
