We were there on a busy Wednesday lunchtime and it was packed and very noisy due to a party of about 10-12 people chattering loudly .. food was OK .. the scone I had was indifferent .. pricey for what we had. The food hall was better with good local produce .. we have been on previous occasions... read more

I had arranged to meet some friends here for lunch as I was told it was a lovely and friendly place, OH were we disappointed..... Firstly we stood at the entrance to the restaurant (as the sign suggested) for a good 15 min, it was not busy at all so why we're we having to wait to be greater, the... More

I really enjoyed this restaurant. The atmosphere was sunny even with the drizzly day outside. The food was very good and the service was excellent. We had breakfast and we were not disappointed. Leave time to explore the lovely shops connected to the restaurant. I enjoyed the oil and vinegar tasting bar. I was able to purchase some of the... More

Although frequent visitors to the shopping experience we have never eaten here, I am so pleased we put that right this past weekend. The Mother's Day menu was varied but contained all you need for a Sunday lunch, which means roast beef and Yorkshire puddings to me. The service was excellent and a pleasant atmosphere nicely set off the food.... More

Stopped here for lunch on Wednesday 25th February. It was very disappointing, extremely busy with a cafeteria-type atmosphere. It was a noisy, hurried environment, not at all relaxing.The portion sizes were very small and overpriced. On the plus side a lot of the food was locally sourced and the farm shop had lots of local produce for sale.

we wanted to book an afternoon tea at short notice as my mum came down to stay for a few days and had never had an afternoon tea. The farm shop and gift shop are great to browse but I was disappointed with the afternoon tea. Unfortunately I was comparing the food to the swan at lavenham which is the... More

Called in on a very busy Monday lunch time without a booking to treat two friends to lunch . We were seated quickly and the service n food that followed were excellent. I have to say as they were so busy I expected to be in for a wait for our food but it came out quickly and was delicious.... More

Stopped off on the way to Norfolk with our family for lunch and had an excellent meal. Also the shopping in this complex is extremely good, particularly for gifts and fresh farm produce.

We stopped off for lunch and as we arrived before midday we had no trouble getting a table, it can get very busy here as we have stopped off before but there was too much of a wait for a table so we went elsewhere. The food is quite pricey but good quality, we had the sandwiches ham and bacon... More

Was recommended to try this restaurant so called in today for lunch on the way to friends in Norfolk. Was not disappointed, although very busy didn't have to wait long for our meal. Not huge portions, not cheap, but very tasty and well presented. Friendly staff. Will definitely visit again should we be in the area.
