Disappointing, really unprofessional service, we were bringing a large group of people so phoned in advance to book a table, but when we arrived they denied all knowledge of us calling and said they were closed. Had my 90+ year old grandma with me and we were asked to leave. Not the way to run a business, I would avoid at all costs. We went to Dimbola lodge who went out of their way to accommodate us even though they were really busy and we had a lovely afternoon there.

Really good home made cakes and other delights! Excellent for vegetarians. Small shop with island produce, worth a visit every time!

I agree with the previous correspondent. It seems that the owners have other priorities over giving customer service in their cafe and shop. Totally hit or miss as to whether the owners can be bothered to produce anything on the day.

Not a way to run a business. AVOID or be disappointed.

We returned to this place after a few years and found it very run down , we went the day after the bestival and as the owners had been at the bestial catering there were only cakes on offer , other people were leaving without having anything , it would have been best if they had either not bothered opening or a notice put outside stating that there would be no lunches that day , it seems that they are doing outside catering and not making more of the cafe,

A lovely county setting where you can walk around the grounds as well as having tea and cake, a shop with loads of goodies and plants, you can sit in and outside so nice to have a choice
