“Great Ploughmans & Cakes”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

We have stopped off here twice now and if it wasn't so far from where we live it would be weekly.The first time it was a cold day so we sat inside and had coffee and gorgeous home made cake.
The second visit was on a lovely sunny Saturday so we sat outside and each had ploughman's,one with ham, the other with cheese,they came with bread,pickle ,celery ,nuts and proper butter and were tremendous.
The cheese selection inside is fantastic and you try before you buy and the Blue Monk is fantastic so if you think you don't like blue cheese try this and I bet you will be converted.

“Not just a tea shop”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

This is a working artisan dairy, making a range of hard, soft and blue cheeses - as well as a nice tea room/cafe/shop. Be sure to visit in the morning on one of their cheesemaking days (Mon, Wed, Fri) and take the £3 half-hour behind the scenes tour; the guides are the people actually making the cheese, so they know their stuff! Makes an unusual, and unexpectedly interesting, stop for an hour our so if you're in the area.

“Very pleasant lunch”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

Very pleasant lunch for 7. Lady made a platter for 7 with a selection of cheeses, ham, chutney and quince with a selection of breads and crackers. This was great service and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
The weather was nice and we were able to pull two benches together for the group to sit outside. Overall a very pleasant lunch.
