Why cook when you can sit in comfort and have a good English breakfast cooked for you. Service is excellent and the place very clean and tidy. You are made very welcome. Food piping hot and good value

We called in for a spot of lunch. The jacket potato was very fluffy and the omelette substantial and tasty. Would thoroughly recommend this place - staff friendly.

The Poppy House offers accommodation and is a perfect place to stay in lovely Bishops Castle. We had a warm welcome, a large and very comfortable room and a great breakfast the next morning. Perfect. Thanks Julie.
