Café re-opening

We are pleased to announce that we will be re-opening as a café on Tuesday 1st September.

Our opening hours will be Monday to Sunday 10.00am until 16.30pm.

The Potting Shed Café will remain open in the garden until the end of September.

Thank you to everyone for your support over the last few months, it has meant that The Wakes can continue to thrive as an organisation.

We will stop selling newspapers as of 31st August as the Selborne Village Shop will be selling them.

Whilst we will return to being a Café, we will continue to sell fresh fruit and vegetables, local free range eggs, local meat, Hampshire cheeses, fresh bread, homemade meals, deli items, our homemade ice cream, and of course our White’s Sausage Rolls!

We very much look forward to welcoming you back to the café from 1st September. Please look out for our special evenings throughout the rest of the year.

Thank you again for your support and for the kindness and compassion shown to all of the team – we have been very appreciative. Email

Brunch and Lunch Menu

At White’s we prepare the food on site, when available using fruit, vegetables and herbs grown in the gardens; along with as much locally sourced produce as possible.

We endeavour to get your food out as quickly as we can.

All our food is prepared fresh to order in the kitchen to ensure the best possible quality.

We are able to cater for any dietary requirements, and if there is anything you would like that isn’t on the menu, please do ask.

Brunch items served from 10.00am – 3.00pm; Lunch served from Midday until 3.00pm
