Our first visit and won't be the last. We thoroughly enjoyed a light lunch, jacket potato, cheese sandwich and a burger. All three of us loved our meals, the salad was lovely as was the home made coleslaw. We also enjoyed shopping in the farm shop!

Having been to the restaurant before we were disappointed in the menu and the food we ate. There was no chance to pick their superb steak (the reason we'd booked) and the service was slower than usual. We may well return, but will make sure we check what's on the menu first!

I visited here with friends at the beginning of the week and had lunch here. I had a jacket potato and for £5.95 it's a bargain. Good quality food and fantastic atmosphere we also had lovely weather too, so that helped 😂 I went back later in the week with my mother and she loved it too, she had the... More

This settings is fantastic, we haven't been here for 17 years and the changes are amazing. The shops are great and the food at the cafe was lovely with a good choice. I had the Rarebit and my wife and daughter had the Salmon platter which they loved. Once you finish your meal you can go around the hall grounds... More

I visited Doddington a couple of weeks ago with my mum to scout it out as a potential wedding venue, I was not disappointed. We thought we would sample the restaurant menu and we enjoyed each and every mouthful. We were impressed that the menu featured many local ingredients, including fresh vegetables from the kitchen garden, the glass of Doddington... More

Another excellent lunch again today and excellent service by the staff, followed by a walk around a selection of shops and the farm shop Can't wait for the up and coming sculpture exhibition that starts at the end of the month, a very impressive dragon on the front lawn today

We have had breakfast a few times at the cafe and not had chance to review it. Breakfast is served 9am until 11am with plenty of choice on offer. We normally have the full Lincolnshire breakfast and mushrooms on toast. The mushrooms are large field mushrooms perfectly seasoned. All ingredients fresh and local and well presented. Both always served hot... More

This is a cafe with a separate adjoining restaurant section. The food available is fresh, varied and well presented, and service fast. This is a place to go and eat rather than a restaurant dining experience, and there are a lot of tables, but it is none the worse for that as it serves its function very well indeed. Prices... More

The cafe gets busy as there was a queue when we were leaving - it is obviously a popular place with the farm shop being a nice change for a different choice of food and drink to buy. Lunch was good, the jacket potato was actually too large! Would definitely return, if the weather is good it would be a... More
