Went with a group of friends, I had soup, cake and a hot chocolate. It was a very busy Saturday but the staff did their best to cope. My food was good, but one of my friends was very disappointed with her scone as it was very dry.

We were tempted to share a sandwich to go with the soup. However the soup was served with a generous amount of top quality bread with plenty of butter so we were glad to have passed on the sandwich. Also bought some superb meat and provisions in the shop.

Visited here a couple of days ago, the farm shop was lovely full of locally grown produce and home made delicious foods. The cafe is very light an airy with overly views from upstairs. The food was delicious, very fresh and large portions. Would definitely recommend a visit here
