The Cafe@Lock 81 provides a relaxing venue between the Batchworth and Chess Locks to enjoy breakfast, lunch or tea. Come and enjoy Claire's hospitality at the Café@Lock 81.

They're an important part of what we do at Batchworth!

On 9th May 2015 the Cafe@Lock 81 reopened after three weeks of intense work by new owners Claire and Warren. The cabin has been totally refurbished and has re-opened with a new menu, which includes speciality teas, homemade cakes and fresh cooked local produce.

The cafe is open every week, Wednesday through Sunday 9.30am to 5.30pm and also Bank Holiday Mondays. Claire was also very proud in December 2016 to receive her 5 star food Hygiene rating from the Food Standards Agency. What more could you want!
