​The Anglers Rest Cafe / Bar started in 2008, part of

Redbridge Fishing Lakes once just a place for anglers to warm

themselves while fishing, over the years our cafe has gone through

a lot of changes now allowing it to stand on its own merit.
Starting it's life just serving breakfasts and bacon rolls, under NEW

award winning Chef/Manager Mark Charnick we offer fantastic food along side our classic cafe menu....
Mark is a strong believer of offering quality local food at affordable prices. 
Since March 2017 we have been planing for a GREAT future...
We now have our own veggie garden, fruit trees & herbs around the grounds using our own produce where possible (cant get any more local) from tomatoes, lettuce & salads, onions, chillies, peppers, cucumbers, winter vegetables, blackberries, apples as well as our free range chicken eggs from our own chickens..... 

WE RECYCLE.. Here at the Anglers Rest Cafe we are committed to recycling our waste and yours, turning where we can into compost for are new garden areas, from egg shells & boxes, napkins, tea bags and vegetable food waste, boxes & take away wont see any bins around the cafe or the lake this is because we try to encourage our customers to use the recycle point next to the tackle shop on the way into the cafe .Many thanks for your help from all the team here at The Anglers Rest..
