Excellent quality produce cheeses galore, cakes, icecream. However customer care could be improved three on counter and only one working for customers. Left three customers to one staff member to serve and they were too busy chatting.

Great to sample such a wide variety of cheeses with such a range of taste and content. Excellent reasonable priced food and drinks in the Creamery Cafe. There is also the opportunity to watch the cheese making process.

I have 2 dogs and we left them in the car. It's only a small place so you wouldn't be in long. We just kept checking them. There is a cafe with seating outside where dogs are allowed. Hope this helps. Well worth a visit... More
