We visited the Farm and Restaurant during the Easter School Holiday with our five-year old Granddaughter. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience as we always do. The Nature Trail was a bonus and great to complete. Cafe staff were extremely friendly and food was delicious, as always! Well worth a visit by both locals and visitors.

Went here with a friend for Sunday lunch. I had Pork, and my friend had fish and chips. We were very happy with the excellent food. We would highly recommend this cafe.

Visited this cafe for the first time. Large cafe but bit plain decoration if I'm honest. We ordered 2 Americanos, a slice of their coffee and walnut cake and a slice of their Victoria sponge. Coffee cake was heavenly with a great ratio of cream to cake and a generous portion. The Victoria sponge not so, cream not whipped enough... More

We visited on a very cold but sunny afternoon with our two year old son. We had fun walking around the allotment, trying to identify all the different things that were growing in the beds and then checking the signs to see if we were right. Then we went on the nature trail and loved watching the ducks, sheep, chickens,... More
