Fantastic

The food is very good quality and very tasty and services is very friendly. We also have had them do outside catering for a number of events we have done and the food is of the best quality and come warm and very well presented.

Get there early as the queues build up from 10am-this says it all. This morning I had Farmhouse Wheaten, tow poached eggs with a mug of coffee. There is a good selection including pancakes, bacon and maple syrup or a selection of scones. The deli and all the fresh produce is second to none. Enjoy.

Dad & I both had haddock with chunky chips & Mum had gammon with creamed mash, cabbage & carrot & parsnip. The food was excellent both in flavour, presentation & quantity. It was excellent & the warm & welcoming atmosphere made it a... More

A Monday, lunchtime, the place was packed. What does that say for the quality and service available at this farm shop and restaurant? Lots! I ordered a ham... More

Lovely pies, tray bakes and General good wholesome food .always busy. Have so much to buy and eat there or bring home. You could spend a fortune. Is a little pricey with some things but well worth it.

Have been several times and each time the food and service were excellent. Best to get there early as this place is always busy. Good food counter with ready made meals and puddings for you to take home and enjoy. Fresh bread also for sale - yummy! Would recommend this to anyone.
