Literally the most amazing scones I've ever had. Light, fluffy and warm from the oven. So delicious we ordered more and left feeling totally stuffed. There isn't a lot to see at the castle itself, particularly on a rainy day, but the cafe is good enough to make it worth the trip on its own. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and welcoming... More

We really enjoyed our meal here. The menu is limited but interesting we all easily found something we wanted. Everyone enjoyed their meal (sandwiches, burger, galette with ham, egg and cheese). Service was friendly and quick and we sat outside with a beautiful view of the castle gates. Highly recommended!

This little cafe, in my opinion, serves up THE best cream teas ever!! Beautifully presented home made scones still warm and light as you will from the oven, one plain and one fruit accompanied with home made strawberry jam, rich, full of flavour with huge chunks of fruit served in its own little pot and a great big dollop of...

An intriguingly unique place in a splendid setting which offers a great menu. A full venue regrettably caused some consternation & service suffered as a result, not just in waiting time but also in the presented dish: my cheese & onion marmalade sandwich initially came without cheese although soon rectified; the cream tea came without tea until prompted. Nine of... More

What a lovely little cafe! the woman behind the counter was polite and everything one could ask for! We only had a cream tea with a cuppa but even the scones were home made and delicious! The food that was being ordered looked lovely and the smells coming from the kitchen were something else! Like I said before, a lovely... More

We visited late in the day after a busy day of castle hunting!! It was a welcome relief to sit down to lovely cakes and cup of tea. Very relaxed atmosphere worth driving the narrow lanes to get here! Would definitely return for a meal as menu sounded lovely.

We didn't expect too much of this café off the beaten track, near the castle, but got a nice surprise. It was quite busy when we stopped for lunch, and the front of house seemed a bit flustered - orders were taken from new arrivals before those of us who had waited for a considerable time. But the menu looked... More

It was raining when we arrived so we sat on the veranda and had a cup of coffee and a slice of cake - very nice. Great setting and even has free WiFi (useful given the remote location). Had a fire going (in June?) which made it too warm inside for me but the veranda was just right.

A French menu by a talented French chef. The front of house team is just as impressive too. Very tasty and well priced!

Expectations are normally low for cafe's at castles and houses but this cafe is superb. High quality food from sandwiches to the lovely roast dinner we had, great chips too. Very friendly service and it wasn't a surprise to see reserved tables.
