“Excellent place to stop, for food, coffee or Deli.”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

We found Chilli Farm by chance while travelling along the A 140 from Kent to Norwich and I'm so glad we did. We like it so much, always finding the staff so friendly and the food excellent, that it is our preferred stop on the journey. Also the range of Deli products on sale is excellent, especially the range of cheeses and sausages. At our last stop, it was no trouble for my wife to enjoy a gluten free cheese on toast with many extras, while I enjoyed the breakfast which utilised many local products. Coffee, again excellent complimented the meal as did the excellent service. From south it's just after the tall mast don't miss it!

“Little bit different”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We only stopped here for a quick cuppa but couldn't resist the carrot cake and the cream tea both were lovely.The staff were pleasant and the place has a nice feel to it.My only critisism would be that the crockery was very dull and I do like nice china !

“lovely lunch”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

i have recntly visited the chilli farm for a lunch , how lovely it was NOT to see chips on the menu , just a nice choice of slightly different food , it was freshly prepared, and was very enjoyable , although along the busy A140 road , up in the restuarant there was little noise even with doors and windows open . The deli had a interesting array of goods on sale , including , cheeses, pickles, chutneys, salsas, fresh produce, and dairy , also ice cream, and fresh bread and cakes and of course ...chilli's etc.( there a few small gifts available such as keyrings , magnets etc ) anyone visiting the area i would recommend a visit ..or those living locally who have not ( like me ) been before , if you just want a nice cuppa and cake this is also available.
Staff were pleasant and friendly too . I will be revisiting !

“Very friendly Staff”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

I was a bit worried as the ratings for this place were terrible but the place is 5 weeks into new ownership or management and it was great. We had toasted baguettes and they were made to our liking - obviously on the premises. It was clean, friendly and the staff were very attentive. I'd definately go again if I am in the area.
