Love this place. Great home cooked food and scrumptious cakes. Very popular with the locals and doing a roaring trade. Good artisan food presented really well in an atmosphere which is outdoorsy and just suits the place. I don't know how they could have got it so right, but they have and the food is fresh, tasty, and great value.... More

I had heard of this place long before I visited so it had lofty expectations to live up to. And it did. An inviting array of cakes on display made it hard to choose. We went as a group and ordered various cakes and hot drinks, all of which went down well. People do queue to get in here. I... More

Slightly limited selection for lunch menu but something for everyone. I had jacket potato with tuna mayo. The potato had a waxy texture and pink colour so clearly had been pre-cooked and just reheated in the microwave. It was reheated thoroughly though with a huge helping of tuna mayo. The side salad was enjoyable with a nice dressing. We sat... More

We were taken for afternoon tea by a couple who'd visited the Tenth Hole before. We sat outside under a covered veranda next to the pitch & put course. Our orders were taken at the counter inside and very swiftly delivered to our table. We only had teas but the pots were large enough for a couple of cups each,... More

I visited the tenth hole with my son (almost 2), my sister and nephew (3) for a quick lunch. We ordered 2 children's packed box lunches which on the menu gave a choice of cheese or ham sandwiches at a cost of £4.50 each together with sandwiches for ourselves. When the lunch boxes came they included tiny squashed sandwiches, a... More

Visited yesterday with my daughter and her 2 children (toddler and newborn). It was a hot day with several wasps outside so as it was late afternoon the staff were able to accommodate us inside. As a coeliac I had a number of gluten free options to choose from. The food when it arrived was delicious. The staff were good... More

Very nice, not the biggest of menus, but doesn't have to be. Lovely home made quiche, great pot of tea, can be a bit noisy as always busy, but worth the wait, would thoroughly recommend.

I have visited the Tenth Hole quite a few times for breakfast and it never disappoints. TIP - on weekends if your after breakfast turn up early as this place is so popular that a queue quickly forms, but even if you find yourself in that queue, its well worth the wait. Cant wait for my next visit

We travel 30 miles to enjoy their cakes. My personal favourite is the banoffee pie. We do have sweet tooth as a family and this is the best tearoom we have ever been to. They also do cakes for birthday parties which was amazing for our daughters birthday. Love it.

This cafe gets very busy because it's so popular. Next to a pitch and putt ground, hence its title. Can be quite noisy inside, especially in the extension part. However, there's outside seating, some undercover, and the road outside has free parking, but finding a space can be difficult. I've visited it several times and have never been disappointed.
