We came for a visit with a leaflet received in the post, it had vouchers for money off things and one for afternoon tea. I ordered an afternoon but what I got was cream
Tea, two scones and pot of tea. The voucher was definitely for afternoon tea and has a picture of sandwiches etc. So just be careful as it’s false advertising and very misleading. Saying that the mocha scone was absolutely delicious and the hot food and salad bar did look very inviting and tasty. It’s clean and tidy and the staff are friendly.

It's a great place to stop for a coffee/tea break. Drinks are good and there's lots of choice for cakes. They often have a special scone variety too. All good stuff!

One section does full means but we've not tried that.

Called today for a Christmas lunch. Normally the later you leave going the more things run out on the menu. It opens at 12.00 so we got there at 12.25. There was no turkey at all. Gammon joint would be another 20 minutes. Staff were very friendly and apologetic. What we had was ok and hot it was not what we wanted. Very disappointing. Will go again but not expect too much.

Good menu of snacks and food, good choice of drinks.
Plenty of searing options including outside where there stunning views over the Derbyshire countryside

We called to look at the Xmas selection in the garden centre and a tea break,
We had a pot of tea for two with mince pie and a milkshake and trifle for our daughter,
The cafe has a nice buzz about it and the staff are friendly,
Lots of good choices and caters for all needs, some dishes on show so you can see what you’re getting,
Lovely view from the windows of the cafe,
Will definitely come to sample more of the cakes!
