Unfortunately we have had to close Goats On The Roof. Sadly the business was unsustainable, we are trying to figure out a viable option for the building moving forward. We would like to thank everyone for the support we have had. Anthony and Jess

Visited goats on the roof on the last bank holiday. Lovely spacious cafe and my 3 year old daughter loved the farmyard animal shaped sandwiches. The set up had clearly been thought through as there was a little area that kids could draw pictures and...More
