Canvas Cafe Great Oxendon

Canvas Café


Built on the site of Waterloo Cottage Farm & Country Bumpkin Yurts, the philosophy of our Canvas Café is to provide delicious, nutritious food and drink along with an experience of country-life with our visitors.

We are super ethical, use organic produce and team up with local suppliers where we can, and we are continuously working hard to minimise our carbon footprint. Much of our produce comes directly from the farm and community garden. Our vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free menu options are popular. We encourage our guests to suggest our menus. Sound about perfect?

During the winter, we are open 3-days a week for breakfast, brunch, lunch and afternoon tea. Come and see us on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

You can reach us from the main road through Great Oxendon (the A508) or take the walk or bike ride directly from Market Harborough along the Brampton Valley Way- or from Northampton if you are feeling adventurous! Just 3 miles from Harborough, we are a perfect cake distance for little, and longer legs. The four-legged kind are all welcome too! For those on wheels, use postcode LE16 8NA and look for the Farm Shop.


You can download our example menus here. However, we change the choices daily to reflect the produce, the seasons and even the weather, so if you have any specific questions or requests, please call us on 0737 502 4672


Our Canvas Café is available for private hire, group hire, events and meetings. If you are looking for a venue for your event- a one-off such as a birthday party or celebration, for a regular meeting; book club, knitting club, WI group or networking group, to name just a few, please call and discuss your requirements. We can accommodate from 2 – 45 people and can offer everything from room only hire to fully catered events.
