This is not a genuine review. We have not been open this January, due to illness. I am living on site, but the tea room and shop have been closed. No new customers have been served, so this must just be a fake review, to knock us down the ratings. There is no other explanation. More

It was lovely to step into the tearoom for dinner, and enjoy a nice hot roast and a lovely coffee liqueur coffee. Sudi was a usual friendly and welcoming, the food arrived quickly, hot and plenty-full. Well worth a visit on a... More

massively over priced food prices we paid were ridiculous For example. £1.90 for a can of coke that was clearly marked not to be sold separately in other words probably cost no more than 30p 2.40p for a small coffee 6.90p for a beef stew 7.50p for a chilli con carni 1.50p for a small bottle of water 7.40p for...

Thank you for your feed back- although I must correct you on a few things. Our menu is clearly displayed on our website, linked to Tripadvisor, so that customers can view the prices before they visit, and decide for themselves if they like the prices. 4 of you ate huge plates of freshly prepared food WITH drinks for under £40....

What a lovely place to visit, the warm hospitality and beautifully presented food is amazing and the gift shop has some great gifts and honey remedies that work wonders. Would highly recommend this place for a lovely treat on a sunny day

Great people, Sudi and Chris always make sure of a great welcome. Good menu, all freshly cooked so wait for the best, don't be impatient, all good things take their time. Will... More

We arrived quite late for lunch, but was seated outside as it was a lovely day. Great views across the fields, lunch was great and probably the best lunch I have had in ages. We would definitely visit again
