“Perfect for Lunch or Afternoon Tea in Balsall Common”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

We discovered this place by accident whilst driving through Balsall Common, close to home in Kenilworth. After a second visit in 2 weeks, I felt it was time for a review.
Apparently it opened in Jan13 but we had't noticed the signs before on the road between Balsall Common and Knowle. With a shortage of places for a light bite for lunch or an afternoon cuppa, this is a cafe which is well worth exploring.
The building is light and airy and contains a well stocked Farm shop as well as the eating area at the sunny end. Get a window seat in the sun and look over the Warwickshire sheep, lambs, hens and countryside. It would probably be good for an evening venue as well.
This really is a secret which shouldn't be shared but as there's plenty of room for everyone, take a first look when you are on that Sunday afternoon drive, desperate for tea and longing for cake!!!

“Superb Farm Shop & Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

A great farm shop with a good selection of fresh, local produce. Great eggs, bread and an in house butchers. The cafe/coffee shop is excellent. The breakfast and home made cakes are highly recommended (they use the produce they sell in the shop which is great). Hopefully they will add an outside eating area, for warmer days.
