Our daughter recommended this as dog friendly, her dog we were looking after! She was totally right, what a lovely place, the staff were so kind, the food was lovely, we were so sad that we had left our labs at home, heyho! Next time, lovely shop etc. etc. will return.

The cafe is under new management and came up to expectations, with good food and a pleasant ambience, even tho it was raining when we were there. The selection of herbs and plants is extensive and the shop has some unusual items useful as gifts, just the place to visit just before Christmas when looking for something different.

Visited on a Saturday and had wonderful lunch, staff were very nice and the food was great. Great shop and no car parking issues. Lovely place to get that extra special little gift.

Lovely place to meet for lunch or a coffee and cake! Plenty of car park and well signposted. A lovely shop with lots of different gifts, plants and herbs for sale and a little maze to navigate so lots to do for all the family. A great coffee shop where you can buy afternoon tea, lunch or just a drink.... More

What a beautiful place to visit. The shop is full of beautiful items, as well as local produce and meats. The restaurant has a nice menu and it's in a pretty rural setting.

We have been to The Herb Farm lots and lots of times and always enjoyed lunch there but sadly it has changed hands and the menu is nowhere near as good - sorry, we'll have to look elsewhere for lunch now. Nevertheless we enjoyed walking around the maze and plants.

Yep, spent four hours here today! Started off with lunch in the coffee shop, then into The Saxon Maze. Kids (8&9) loved it. We raced through then teamed up and race through again. A very quiet day here so then got to play endless games of Manhunt within the maze! Walked round to give the horses a pat, climbed trees,... More

A huge range of herbs and fruits trees. The plants and herbs are well tended and the cafe offers a nice "cup of tea" or other refreshment. Lovely scenery, a shop, a maze for kids to explore, good food and family friendly. Whilst not the cheapest place the quality is certainly excellent.

Have driven past a number of times, so was pleasantly surprised to discover what lay inside. Lovely scenery, a shop, a maze for kids to explore, good food and family friendly.
