Nipped in for some lunch a few days ago. Polite staff. Meals were good and the seating area was suitable with a high child for the you one. We were invited to look around the ground floor displays. Pleasant afternoon

Had a lovely piece of chocolate cake that was very moist and was homemade. The pot of.tea was lovely too. The staff were very friendly and helpful and assisted with getting the pushchair up and down a few steps. Garden is stunning would highly recommend.
