Wonderful afternoon tea with family to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Scrumptious, well filled variety of sandwiches, light fluffy scones with jam and cream, meringues with cream and tasty tray bakes.
Comfortable, bright environment with the option to peruse the well stocked farm shop and garden centre. Highly recommended.

Date of visit: September 2019

Nice selection of products in both the shop and deli and very reasonably priced. We have lunched here on many occasions, but not for some considerable time. Have always considered the service fine and the quality of the food top notch. The pricing of the food is not unreasonable and very much in line with other good quality eateries. Called in for breakfast this morning. I had the Full Monty, and my wife had a breakfast roll. We both enjoyed this very very much and Ardardan will be our go to breakfast/brunch location for the future. Had a very pleasant and interesting chat with Mrs Monty' on our way out about some of the innovative ventures going at Ardardan. Definitely recommend a visit.

We all went on a sunny Saturday afternoon 4 generations of the family from 83yrs to nearly 2yrs and had a lovely cream tea with sandwiches scones and cake we dined outside at the rear of the tea room with a beautiful view. The service was faultless as was the food,we have been down to Ardardan three or four times now and can recomend it to all ages.
