The High Bridge, built over the River Witham circa 1160 is the only Medieval bridge in England with houses still upon it, and our unique building has been standing tall since 1540. Take time to enjoy this historic building in its full glory with a jolly good brew, and maybe a bite to eat too.
If you’re a true coffee lover, our splendid selection of single origin beans and blends at Stokes High Bridge Café will have you spoilt for choice. Get comfy with a smooth and creamy cappuccino, wake up with one of our fabulous filter coffees, or tickle your taste buds with something a little more unusual from the Brew Bar at Stokes.
We also have more than 30 loose leaf teas on the menu, from our award-winning Gold Medal Tips to the utterly unique Flo’s Mix, a true Stokes original invented way back in the 1970s by one of our long-serving waitresses.
