I recently visited The Froginwell for an early lunch with a friend; neither of us had been before & so we weren't sure what to expect. I thought the sign outside saying 'come inside for a warm welcome' was a nice touch. Inside the barn is pretty cavernous with part of it given over to tables & part of it to the shop. All the lovely wood, the attractive decoration, the bits & pieces on display & for sale & the huge log burner all help to draw the rather large space together.
As for the food, it was first class, we both chose the cooked breakfast and the quality of the ingredients was obvious & everything we had was delicious. Everything is sourced locally which is a big plus. I also had a berry tea, it was loose leaf & served in a lovely teapot & china cup which was a really nice touch.
I would have given the whold experience 5 stars (the food certainly was) had it not been for the fact we were a little lost as to whether to take a table or wait to be seated when we first arrived & despite there being a waitress behind the counter we had to ask (would have been nice to be greeted & advised what to do). Judging by other reviews maybe this was a one off. Also at the corner table we chose we couldn't see the specials board & didn't realise it was there until we were leaving :( Maybe an idea to ask customers if they've seen the specials board before they order? That said our waitress was very polite & I will definitely visit again.
