Limited choice. We ordered the “Vegetable broth” for £6 which was NOT a broth but a root vegetable stew, consisting mainly of carrot and potato. It came with a decent size roll, which was lovely, but the “broth” itself came in bowls which were (I kid you not) the same size as the bowls our tapas had been served in the day before in a Tapas restaurant. It’s not as if vegetable stew is expensive!!

We visited for breakfast as we had heard good things about the food. Unfortunately our expectations were not met, one of our groups meal was burnt but still served to us, fortunately this was rectified. The sausages in the sausage sandwiches were halved and cooked so they were crunchy - certainly not worth the £5 price tag. The cooked breakfast was slightly improved but all in all a real disappointment.

It was a real treat to stop at this rustic farm cafe for lunch - lovely scotch egg, game pie, soup and toastie. The stats on the plate were the coleslaws and the 'dips' though, they lifted every dish and made all of us enjoy the experience all the more. The only negative was that the game pie and scotch egg weren't served hot, a real missed opportunity!

Overall it was good service, great food and at a reasonable price - just please heat things up or give people the option!

Charming atmosphere and relaxed eating area set within the shop. Quality food prepared on premises and with the environment high on the agenda regarding food's origin. Not cheap but well worth a visit.
