We first heard about the name from friends and fell over laughing. But I did some research and decided to go there. I called to book in advance (you have to) and was told that we could come over for a Sunday meal.
It was lovely. My then-pregnant wife felt she was back home in her "maaika" with cows in the distance and friendly dogs wandering around. There was even a little pool.
Tikli Bottom is basically a residential farmhouse that belongs to an old British couple who are settled here. They have an operational home farm and a few rooms to stay with a lovely meal set out when the weather is good.
The lunch was fantastic: more so because everyone sat around a single dining table - it was like meeting a new group of friends for the first time rather than the impersonal coldness of a restaurant. The meal was served exactly as it would have been at a friend's place - not stinting on the rather decent wine and beer and food passed around the table. The food was good; the trifle pudding delicious and the company wonderful.
We sat and soaked in the sun for a while and decided we definitely had to come back soon.
Warning: this is not the kind of place where you can raise hell. It is ideal for couples and families or if you want quiet time alone.
