Had lunch at Caudwell's on 30th December. 6th visit this year. Great food, superb value and a lovely setting. Free parking and quaint gift shop opposite the cafe. Fantastic for veggies as the entire menu is vegetarian or vegan. Shame there aren't more places like this.

There is free parking. As you walk towards the craft centre, there is a lovely lawned area with a small bridge on the right that you can walk over to see the working flour mill wheel in action. There is a bench under the trees where you can sit and look out over the fields across from the centre where... More

We've visited the mill and craft centre many times (but not recently) its still very good, the shops are nice, and worth a look round. I stocked up on flour which is very good. It was a Sunday afternoon when we visited and despite sticking our heads in the door a couple of times couldn't get a table in the... More

Often visit the cafe for afternoon tea and a Huge choice of cakes ~ the scones are to die for! My only minor grip would be 99% of the savoury food has garlic and/or onions in. I am severely allergic to onions, and so am not able to eat a hot meal there, which is a great shame, as the... More

Liked the cafe and the shop - and the super porridge oats we bought, recommended by a very friendly local man we met.

Very nice place, not very busy, nice local shops and most of all the best flour you can buy ever! I'm going there tomorrow again to buy flour for home made bread!

We saw this advertised as a working flour mill and craft shops, there is actually only one shop - which is a normal gift shop really. Seeing the working mill was very interesting, I think they should have a more prominent area for the sale of their own flour, rather than it being tucked away at the far end of... More

Visited for the second time. Homity Pie is a must. Really excellent food. Could be a little friendlier though.

The mill is in a lovely setting, the mill is of historical interest, the craftsmen there were not all working and there was very little interaction with the public. The gallery and jewellery was very poor, very few pictures to view and not much jewellery and the quality was not very good. The craft shop was really just a gift... More
