Good food, plenty of it. A very traditional cafe but plenty of space. Very good value and good basic food. Recommend the Sunday dinner but you might need to book.

Interesting site full of many animals, suitable for anyone, including small children. Thank goodness these kind-hearted people are there to help these animals who have been rejected/neglected.

Response from John G | Reviewed this property |
No dogs; this is not a dog/cat rescue centre, more a small scale zoo for farm animals. The animals are not for adoption.
