The café first opened in July 2011 and has gone from strength to strength since then. From initially being staffed entirely by volunteers, the cafe now has five full-time employees and a smaller number of volunteers who are, nevertheless, vital to the continued success of the cafe. Everyone who has been involved over the last seven years has contributed to the reputation we have already gained for excellent lunches, cakes and coffee. In 2014, Rumbletums won the Eastwood and Kimberley Advertiser Café of the Year award.
The café is open from Tuesday to Saturday 09:30am – 3.00pm, offering a tasty menu with FairTrade and locally sourced ingredients being used as much as possible. A wide range of breakfasts (including a traditional full English), snacks, main courses and a wide range of tasty cakes are always on the menu. We also have different choices on our daily specials board, which change regularly.
For lunch, we have our main staples such as savoury tarts and jacket potatoes, which are served alongside other delicious dishes such as lasagne, chilli, ciabattas and soup (most of these with both meat and vegetarian options). All our meals and cakes are made on the premises, and we pride ourselves on our homemade food. The cafe is child friendly and is fully accessible for wheel chair users.
