The Strawberry Line Café on Yatton Station Platform is a very special place. Not only does it sell delicious meals and cakes made on the premises and fair trade organic coffee, half of the employees have a learning disability, including a full time apprentice. The café is a social firm, meaning any profits are used to create more opportunities for people with learning disabilities. The building itself was restored with help from the Railway Heritage Trust and the South West Regional Development Agency, and is an original Brunel waiting room retaining some original features. Donated photos and memorabilia from the Strawberry Lines’ heyday are displayed on the walls. Visit the website
