Gilks Garage Cafe

Good Old Fashioned Service

Medals Gold

Visited and handpicked by Petrolheads Welcome.


We have had this family run cafe on our radar for a while so jumped at the opportunity to call in on a recent road trip.

What a gem!

It’s not just another ‘motoring themed cafe’. It’s run by the same family that originally ran the garage business since the 1900’s and the decor pays homage to that.  There is ample flat parking at the front and an overflow gravel area at the rear.

One hint: if you do go be prepared to add extra time onto your journey as you will undoubtedly get engaged in motoring conversations with the owners and other guests as we did!

PS – They also open on Friday and Saturday evenings from 5:30 – 8:30.
