My grandchildren enjoyed making their own pitza at The Italian farmhouse. The staff are very friendly and the food is lovely.

We're quite regulars here and always have a lovely meal. We born had goats cheese bruschetta as a starter (fab) then moved on to chicken in genoveses sauce and finished with meringue and forest fruits. A bottle of house white excellent. All for £30 excellent.
