The Romans were renowned for their love of fine food and feasting so there is nowhere more perfect to sate a hungry stomach than in the ancient Roman grounds at Brading. The Forum Cafe is privy to some stunning panoramic views over Sandown Bay and serves up a great range of lunches, snacks, cakes and drinks. Once you’ve had your fill of Roman mosaics, ancient ruins and beautiful rolling countryside, head to the cafe where you’ll be tempted by a plethora of homemade cakes and slices, speciality teas and coffees, locally produced cider and ales and a range of freshly filled baguettes and sandwiches. A daily specials board of hearty favourites and children’s options including a Wicked Roman lunch bag are also available.

The café can be hired for private functions and is popular for wedding and birthday celebrations. With its relaxed style and informality, the Forum Café provides the ideal setting to take it easy and enjoy well-priced appetising local food and friendly, efficient service. With all profits from the cafe going towards the Oglander Roman Trust (reg. charity 1044506), you can be comfortable in the knowledge that your lunch has contributed to the preservation of this important heritage site. The Forum Cafe is open daily from 10am – 4pm.
