I've been here several times and like the ethos of the place, nothing pretentious, just good food, well served and presented and reasonable priced.Its really nice to sit outside in the better weather and look over the fields whilst enjoying good and wholesome fare. Well done Alex and her staff!

Exceeded expectations but over pricing let it down and lack of comfortable seating. Also staff were not that pleasant. Lots of parking and easy to find, food was home cooked and lovely. Attached is a antique shop and veg stall alongside shed and paving sales. It did get very busy we arrived at 11am and it was empty but by... More

We both had the full English breakfast which was cooked to order with good quality ingredients. Was presented very nicely, came piping hot and tasted as good as it looked. You are offered a choice of fried or scrambled eggs but when I enquired if I could have poached (there's poached eggs on toast on the menu) I was told... More

I know a few people who had been previously put off by the breakfast here only being sold at breakfast time - as the banner on the roundabout still states - remember "Falling Down"? I am not sure that the customer service here is quite John Lewis standard however the venue and the quality of the breakfast certainly make up... More

5 of us ate here last week, as it was convenient meeting place for those of us travelling along the A14. The place was full and there was a short queue which we joined. We were shown to a table after 10 minutes. The lunch menu was good, and the service good and cheerful. The food was very good, We... More

Just been for lunch. While the food is good, the menu is very limited and the waiting times are long. That said, its a nice environment with lovely country views, bookings are not taken other than on a Sunday. Would I go again, yes, would it be my first choice, no. A pleasant little tea room which is OK.

5 of us visited these delightful tea rooms on 02/10/2014. All of us ordered our food and paid separately, but all food was served together which was a lovely touch. I opted for a BLT sandwich which was served with homemade coleslaw. The sandwich was deep filled, delicious and very well presented. I was pleased to still have room to... More

Nice staff, good drinks menu including big, hot, tasty mugs of coffee and decaf tea, both appreciated greatly. Also nice cosy feel inside and very green view over the fields. Highlight was definitely the coffee and walnut cake.
