Our website is changing. Very soon the Sumners Ponds and Cafe by the Lake website will merge and all information, events, updates and menus will be found at

The Cafe by the Lake is family run cafe, bar and restaurant at Sumners Ponds in the quaint picturesque village of Barns Green. We are open to the all, including day visitor from 8.00am each day serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, snacks and ice cream. Tuesday to Sunday our bar and restaurant is open until 10.30pm serving evening meals. See the current opening times to the right.

Enjoy a full English breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea on the decking overlooking the lake, or something a bit more warming, during the winter, inside the cosy restaurant. Home cooked meals are also available in the evenings on Tuesday - Sunday nights as well as drinks from the bar. Our licensed bar has Peroni and Kozel on draught with a wide selection of other bottled lagers and ciders, an extensive wine and spirit selection and local ales both on draught and bottled. Live music and quiz nights as well as other larger events are planned throughout the year. Please see our events page.

Sunday roasts are back every Sunday at lunch and dinner time. See the menu on the menus page. Booking is recommended.

We look forward to welcoming you..
