Lynwood & Co.
We have been serving truly independent coffee and honest food since 2015, bringing the down-to-earth and family-oriented coffee culture of Sydney to the Cotswolds.
The Lynwood & Co name has been a staple of Australian artisan preserves and chutneys for more than 20 years and we continue the family tradition of serving products which are good value, generous and accessible to all here in the UK.
We work exclusively with local and independent producers who are as passionate about honest and human-made products as we are. This special care certainly shows and we have been voted Best Coffee Shop of the year 2016 at the Cotswold Life Food & Drink Awards and feature in the 2017 Guardian list of the 50 best breakfast places in the UK.
Our Lynwood & Co cafes are at the centre of the community. We believe in generosity, sharing and giving back. We are avid contributors to local school fundraisers and charity events and make sure that the local Lechlade/Fairford and Carterton youth football club looks smart in their Lynwood kit. We also raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support and support Mary’s meals though our ‘tap lunch box’ where one tap of £1.00 provides 5 children with lunch for a week.
We value loyalty, quality and commitment and promise that you leave our cafes with a smile.
one of our Cotswold cafes
We opened our original cafe in the main square of the beautiful market town of Lechlade in 2015. Since then, we opened our sister cafes in Fairford, Burford, Carterton and most recently Cirencester . We are continuously looking for unique locations to open the next Lynwood & Co cafe near you.
All of our cafes serve seasonal, traceable to farm coffee and locally sourced, homemade food. Our cafes are as individual as the people who visit them and the towns and villages in which they are set.
Lechlade's Market Place has been selling locally produced food since 1210 AD and we are very proud to continue this tradition in our flagship cafe on the square. In addition to our regular all-day menu, we serve sumptuous Saturday and Sunday brunches, and you can reserve our large community table for any gathering.
Our cafe in Fairford is the perfect location for an intimate and relaxing breakfast or lunch. Come and taste our famous home-baked cakes, sausage rolls and deliciously hot and melty grilled sandwiches whilst admiring the astonishing medieval stained-glass windows of St. Mary's church.
All of our cafes have free high-speed internet and everyone is welcome, no matter what age you are or how many legs you have.

What is new at Lynwood & Co.
Our new cafe in Bampton opened in July 2022 under the watchful eye of Sam. He seems to be attracting some great new regulars and the local support has been amazing.
Our bread is now 100% certified organic by The Soil Association and we have 2 new offerings in our line up-our 'Organic seeded' which is on every day and our 'Fig & walnut' on the weekends.
Over the past 4 months we have been getting all our baristas to visit Extract coffee in Bristol to learn more about roasting, new equipment and why our coffee is so amazing. Our head barista Harry will be uploading a video to the website in coming weeks to showcase the roastery and meet some of the guys.
