We called in here whilst on our visit to the vineyard. We are so glad that we did. We ordered coffee and cakes - the cakes were delicious. I looked around at what other people were eating for lunch and everything looked appetizing and home made. We bought some of the local beer and only wished we had bought some wine as well but we were unable to carry it. Will definitely go back.

As I said in November last year, at the request of our members 20 of us were back again on the 13th. Don't let it be said 13 is unlucky. We had a most enjoyable afternoon. The starters of prawn cocktail were lovely and fresh. The variety of roasts were beautifully cooked. The vegetables and meat were more than ample. Also available were smoked fish platter, dressed crab, salmon fillet and quiche. Because of our numbers we do pre-order our requirements. Dead on time the meals were served, bearing in mind that all tables were reserved the service was brilliant. Dessert were varied from fruit crumbles to cheesecake and ice creams. I do not know how they manage to cater for so many. They also had some second sittings. It is essential that you book early for Sunday. Thankyou Maria and staff and yes we will be back for a 7th time.

Travelled up from Hastings simply to have Sunday lunch here again We went on Sunday 29th April 2018. A rather chilly day but a lovely warm welcome from all at Maria's Tea Rooms. Excellent roast lunch just like Mum used to make.! Good choice of beef, pork or chicken all with traditional roast potatoes and fresh veg with gravy to die for! Lovely wine & very reasonably priced with substantial puds. Can't wait to go again!

Nice surroundings, nice people, excellent food. best lasagna ever. Nicely served and reasonably priced. Dogs welcome outside.
Shame on some of the dog owners for not picking up in the grounds, just hope it doesn’t result in a ban. Please pick up
