Employer information

Caffe Velo Verde is a place with a difference. Based on an Eco Farm in Screveton, Nottinghamshire, on the edge of the Vale of Belvoir, Café Velo Verde is primarily a cycling café. We have created a place that has the atmosphere and community of a sports social club but with the warm welcome of a good local pub. Enjoyed by many cyclists, joggers, rowers and triathletes, Caffe Velo Verde is also a vital part of the local community. Customers feel equally at home whether they arrive on their own or with a group, in lycra or in rest day attire. With the majority of customers sharing a common interest there’s always someone around they can chat to and someone new to meet.
