The Baker’s Café

The Baker’s Café  is a brand new Community Cafe at the heart of Swindon’s historic Railway Village. Formerly the Baker’s Arms pub, the building has been restored and opened as a social enterprise by the Mechanics’ Institution Trust, with funding & support from Power to Change , RE:FRESH Swindon Borough Council and South Swindon Parish Council. Find us at 16 Emlyn Sq, SN1 5BN.


The café serves freshly cooked, tasty meals at affordable prices. We are open Tuesday to Friday, 11am to 3.30pm for lunches (served 12 – 3pm). On Saturdays we open 9am-4pm for breakfasts (served 9.30am to 11am) and lunches (served 12pm to 3pm). You are also welcome to visit during any of these times for tea, coffee, cold drinks and cake.

Below is our standard weekday food menu. We will also have 2 to 3 specials each day too, so there’ll always be something new to try! For latest specials and menus, follow us on Twitter: @BakersCafe_SN1  or on Facebook.
