We went here during the kids summer holiday period as a 1 off visit, never having been there before. The tea room was fine enough with lots of pottery and bits and bobs to buy.
The cakes were all home made and there was a good selection to choose from. Well priced and very tasty indeed....
We then went to visit the corn mill itself, there is an entrance fee £3 per adult £2.50 per child (as i remember), we wandered around the mill and it was interesting but did not quite grab me enough to want to stay in there long enough. We were given a demonstation by a young chap who appeared quite up on old mills and water wheels.
All in all, I think if you buy a tea and a cake in the shop, you should get free entrance or at least discounted £2.00, to the mill, if you dont get tea and a bun, you should pay to get in.
The owners were very nice indeed, pleasant and helpfull. Perhaps an older wrinkly, weathered person to show how the mill works would create more of an atmosphere for the rest of the old codgers that might come along in the future.
