We stopped off here on way back from holiday. Staff very friendly. Cafe is light and airy. Tasty bacon, sausages and fresh mushrooms. Perfect for a relaxing breakfast (with a spot of butterfly spotting on the side). Allergen aware and does soya milk.

Didn't know about this place until my grandparents recommended it. It's great for family's and it's very reasonably priced considering the choice available and the emphasis on local produce.

Sunday Carvery is great, good choice of meat and veg, lovely yorkies. You must book though as us locals have cottoned on to this. Deserts are fab especially the honeycombe ice cream :-)

I’ve been here twice with my family instead of going out for lunch to a pub on a Sunday and I was pleasantly surprised at how great the roast was! The family who run the restaurant are also very friendly. Reasonably priced also!
