As usual here, lovely friendly service & amazing food...Steak Pie and Lamb Shank highly recommend! The specials menu beats all competition in the area with a choice to suit everyone.

Good food, we have been regulars for years. Recently the garden centre part of it sold off. The cafe is still popular, but the service is poor since changing the lay out. They need a computerised ordering system instead of writing two separate orders for food and drink, this causes delays . Training of staff to clear tables as they... More

We opted for two courses, it was nice to be seated and order our lunch at the table, something we aren't used to at this establishment, as you normally order and pay at the till. The tables had nice Christmas table clothes and crackers, nice crackers too! Drinks... More

What a beautiful little place to eat. Great for people of all ages. Lovely homemade food served by friendly staff. Great value for money and lovely to have a look around the garden centre and shop too.

We visit the cafe regularly and it has now become our favourite place to eat in the area. The breakfast selection is great and we always try something different each time we go for lunch. We've been very impressed with everything we have eaten and the coffee is always really nice too.
