Delicious cakes and good pot of tea. Great views and will definitely go back for one of their pizza nights which look amazing. A delightful find after a wander around Woodchester Park.

We had the Indian mezze for Sunday lunch; food, service and location were excellent. So great to see more than one vegetarian option too. I must say after a recent visit to India, the curry and especially the paneer were equal (if not better) than...More
