Thank you Jacqueline, we are so glad you visited. If you are local, and £9.50 is too much to get in our annual passes are the best value for money.

Great decor, fantastic quality 'home-cooking' type food at reasonable prices. Clean, efficient and happy uniform T-shirted good-looking young staff. Watch out for Farmer Palmer himself.

Visited this Spring with my Grandchildren, they liked feeding the lambs and goats. Watching a cow being milked was fascinating and they loved the tractor ride. The café was good value to.
