Opened in July 2014, Mudlarks Garden Café is Hertford’s only vegetarian and vegan café. Using locally sourced seasonal ingredients and produce from the Mudlarks allotment site, we serve a wide range of delicious homemade savouries, cakes and pastries. Situated in the heart of Hertford, we’re supporting people with learning disabilities and mental health issues to learn and work in our community.

In early February 2016 Mudlarks Garden Café was moved next door to 10 Railway Street.

Sourcing of Ingredients

Wherever possible we will use produce grown on our Allotments at Cromwell Road, produce grown sustainable and organically from local suppliers and items obtained from the Fairtrade network.

We are part of a scheme called Fareshare, which means that we collect food close to the sell-by date from Tescos. It’s been really good, and has provided plenty of herbs, eggs etc that are perfectly suitable to use in the Cafe.
