Please be aware that the Café is a community project organised and run by volunteers. 


Our current regular opening times are Mondays to Fridays 10.30am to 3.30pm.

However we will close on May 2nd – the early Spring Bank Holiday – and on Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd June for the Jubilee Bank holiday.


We now have a Facebook page!


While the Café was closed due to COVID19 restrictions a bench was installed outside in memory of Jim, one of our regular customers. He visited the café most days until he died in 2019. Thanks are due to Jim’s family and others who contributed to the cost of installing this bench. It is there for the community to use.

Changes to normal opening times are here

Meet old friends or make new friends while having a cup of tea or coffee.  Do your shopping in Tilehurst … and come back for lunch.   Have tea and a scone or cake before you go home!   Do some of it … or even all of it … and become part of the community.

All those who work in The Link Café are volunteers (this is one of our teams)

If you have visited, and like us, why not join us?   Contact us here.

For over 30 years we have built our good reputation on providing home cooked food as well as a listening ear and a Christian welcome to all. For this to continue we always need more people to join our bank of volunteers!

As well as volunteers to work in the kitchen and café we always need people to do home baking and laundry.  If you, or anyone you know, would like help, please contact us here  for more information.


Thank you.
