Fresha Cafe and Shop sign


Fresha Café puts its heart and soul into providing locally sourced, great tasting food that caters for a variety of tastes.

With comfortable leather sofas, friendly staff, disabled facilities, and free parking and Wi-Fi for customers, Fresha is the perfect stop off for a quick morning coffee or a family lunch. This is a great place to catch up with a friend, hold a meeting or just escape for a while. Not far from J29 and J30 exits of the M5, Fresha offers a great alternative to the motorway services with its relaxed, friendly atmosphere.

We use high quality ingredients sourced from local suppliers, and meals are prepared to order in our kitchens, guaranteeing maximum freshness. On the menu is a large selection of appetising hot and cold food with daily specials including delicious homemade soups and perfectly cooked jacket potatoes with a variety of toppings including vegetarian options.

We serve a range of ethical coffee, luscious hot chocolate and speciality teas, and our mouth-watering homemade desserts and treats are available throughout the day, as well as fresh fruit, salads and snacks. And when you are in a hurry, we always have a wide range of freshly made sandwiches and cakes ready for you to take away.

As well as our welcoming café, Fresha also has a spacious conference room available for hire. With all the usual facilities plus the bonus of freshly made refreshments and coffee on tap, the conference room , which is tucked away from the main café, has proved a popular option for networking, business meetings, seminars, away-days and community gatherings.

The Fresha team looks forward to giving you a warm and friendly service during opening hours Monday to Friday. Email for more information.
