Good Food & handily placed

We ate here after visiting the Hawks on Walks at the Falconry centre. The food was very good, although the table next to us sent theirs back as it was cold, but outs was fine and reasonably priced. I would recommend it.

Very busy at the time but our coffees arrived quickly. Impressed by what was on offer but we only needed drinks.

Serves well cooked food and cakes. A nice breakfast menu served in the morning. Service can be a little erratic at times but I understand the manager is working on this aspect. Make sure the waitress / waiters know you have arrived and sat down at a table or you can get overlooked. Its nice to sit outside in the... More

We had Sunday lunch and it was quite outstanding. A lovely warm environment and delightful food with good service. All reasonably priced. We look forward to returning.

We booked a table for eight on a Sunday lunchtime recently. 2 had lamb dinners, one had beef dinner, two child meals (sausage and fish fingers), haddock fish cakes, soup with bread, and pate with gluten free roll. All was as described, we asked for the gravy to be served separately for the Sunday dinners and this was done. The... More

Visited here as a treat out. Nice menu, good choice, clean and great service so what more could you want. We were all pleased with our choices, soup of the day was very tasty. Farm shop also with plenty of choice.

We visited the farm shop cafe on 21 July just for a quick afternoon tea and cake. The cakes are fab - no question, but I have to say the service could be better. I found myself having to politely nudge one of the staff that my tea and cake were sitting on the counter 'ready to go' (and had... More

I've been here a few times now, and while I find the food really delicious (the Battlefield Ploughmans is superb) I always think it's a little bit expensive. However... Lovely location, lovely staff, and the deli is full of treats too. It gets quite busy but on a nice day the outside seating is lovely. Overall though, really nice!

We were amazed that on a blazing hot Easter Monday, this cafe closed at 4pm despite customers wanting tea.

Visited on a Monday lunchtime and it was very busy. Maybe this is why service was slow. The waitress seemed a bit stressed and when she eventually took our order for a sausage and caramelised onion roll she offered it on granary bread but when it came it was on a wholemeal roll as described on the menu. Whilst the... More
