Tried the scones, clotted cream and jam with 2 nice mugs of Cappuccino and Americano, excellent and not overly expensive. We sat outside as it was sunny, inside I would think its very noisy if full. We called in and looked round the food hall, bit disappointing we thought, not much in overall choice compared to some, quite small and... More

The farm shop has lots of scrummy food from cheese and chutney to venison and steaks. Tastings available and lots to choose from. There are several other shops in the courtyard with gift shops and toy shop and a cafe A nice change from must a farm shop

We had a lovely afternoon tea here last weekend. A present from my Brother. The staff were so friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Sandwiches, scones and jam and lovely dainty cakes, all made on the premises. Would definitely recommend this place, also the shops.

Well worth a visit if you wish for the special purchase for someone. A food delight, but watch the wallet as prices can be high. You only live once and should taste the best at least once.

Regular visitor to this lovely venue - wonderful little courtyard shops, amazing food shop and deli, great coffee/restaurant - serving wonderful, local food, often sourced from the Estate. Easy to miss with the new A11 - worth the 5 minute "nip off"! Often take my puppy to sit in the pretty courtyard area - always made welcome by Lauren, who... More

The food is top quality and from their own estate so super fresh. A 10 minute drive for us so very convenient. Not cheap but then you get what you pay for. If you want cheap go to a faceless chain with plastic food. The few shops are also lovely. We bought a chest of drawers and a few other... More

We popped in to the restaurant for coffee and cake on a recent Saturday and were disappointed to find, once again, that no gluten free options were available. I had to go into the shop and select something from the (very narrow) range of options there before returning. I do not understand why the cafe cannot provide gluten free cake... More

We were a party of 4 adults and 2 children aged 10. We booked for a Saturday lunch and were greeted with smiles all round. The cafe was busy but we were served promptly. The food was ok and I feel, quite pricey. Can not fault the service or surroundings. Lovely courtyard to sit in on a sunny day, and... More

Positive things first: The staff were most pleasant and helpful, and the toilets were clean. However the meal was a disappointment even to the extent of... More

I don't know what happened on Sunday 10th August either. Like the previous review our roast meals were terrible. We asked for steak knives to cut the tough beef which was of no help. As previously stated, the roast potatoes were hard and impossible to cut. The Yorkshire pudding appeared to have been cooked a long time before and the... More
