A delightful independent café in Cottingham, near Market Harborough, serving a wide variety of beautifully presented home cooked food for breakfast, lunch, coffees and afternoon teas to suit all diets and appetites.


The Blackthorn Café can be found adjacent to the popular Blackthorn Wood Golf Club, on the Corby Road, just 7 miles out of Market Harborough. This exceptional café opened its doors to the public in June 2020, having been lovingly refurbished from the golf club's function room, by the new owner Nikki Elliott.


Whether travelling from Market Harborough or Corby, you'll see the road sign to direct you from the main road, and with ample parking, once there you'll receive a warm welcome and immediately feel relaxed in the attractive environment.

What seperates this café and tearoom from others is the variety of beautifully presented home cooked food options available. Of course, you can just pop in for a welcome cup of your favourite delicious coffee or tea, but if it's a hearty full on English breakfast you're after, you certainly won't leave hungry! On the other hand, maybe you'd prefer something a 'little healthier' - the choice is yours.

Tasty and appetising lunches are served from 11.30am - 3pm with the day's 'specials' promoted on the board to tempt you. But if you'd prefer something lighter, choices from sandwiches, paninis, or jacket potatoes with a variety of delicious fillings are always available. The 'Baked Ham, Egg & Fries' is a particular favourite, as well as the delectable home made 'Soup of the Day'!

All diets are catered for with gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options available on request.

From 2pm onwards, you can treat yourself and/or guests to a Cream Tea or full 'Afternoon Tea', with a variety of sandwiches, scones and cakes, the likes of which you're unlikely to find elsewhere! Simply exquisite!

If the weather allows, you can enjoy the outside facilities, but if not, you'll find the indoor atmosphere very welcoming and of course spotlessly clean and inviting - in fact everything you could wish for in a high quality café or tea room.


Blackthorn Café is open 6 days per week (Mon - Sat):

9am - 11.30am - Breakfasts 

11.30am - 3pm - Lunches

2pm onwards - Afternoon Teas
