The Retreat Café

Dear friends, we are very proud to present our cruelty-free café based in the heart of our beautiful sanctuary, situated in idyllic Kent.

Why not enjoy a perfect day out among our many rescued animals, see our incredible mature oak trees many with tree preservation orders to protect them, and our natural ponds and meadows which are home to many species of wildlife.

Our café is the only vegan café in the South East at an animal rescue centre. You can also shop and take home with you many of your favourite VBites products.

Our micro-café is open 12 pm - 4 pm Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday every week. Dogs on leads welcome.

We serve hearty daily specials which include
