Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This place is simply the best. Great food, fantastic environment, wonderful staff. If you're looking for an out of the way treat for friends or family, this is it.

Best pre-prepared savoury healthy food for lunch for many many miles. The absolute opposite of a "greasy spoon" type place. Meat and veggie dishes. Creative salads. Great cakes so a great tea break stop as well. Some places its hard to choose because I don't...fancy anything. Here its the opposite. I could eat it all so hard to pick just one!! Really nice atmosphere. Love it. Cyclists favourite cafe as well.More

Visited here with elderly mother. We had tea and cake. Great big mug of tasteless milky tea and equally tasteless cake. Staff were friendly but very inexperienced and slow. Conservatory was pretty. Sadly I doubt we will be back.

Have visited a few times in the last year - with a group of friends, with my boyfriend and most recently with my parents. Each time the lunch has been delicious and staff friendly. I usually go for the ham with a couple of the...salads on the side. Plenty of seating indoors as well as outside. There is a public footpath located close to the cafe where you can enjoy an amazing circular walk passing small lakes, beautiful rural buildings and farmland. On my last visit, I couldn’t resist leaving with some homemade sausage rolls and an apple chutney. Looking forward to my next visit!More

We were staying nearby and this place was recommended to us, We ended up going every day. There is a good choice of food for the vegan amongst us and the food was delicious. They also sell lovely homemade items and produce. Great atmosphere and...staff are super nice. We visited in December and it was lovely and warm and cosy, Will definitely return for a yummy breakfast. The donkeys were not out in the field as it was too cold but we did sneak into the barn to see them.More

My mother and I visited the farm shop for the first time today having driven past it for a number of years. The approach was not super clear but the tearoom was lovely! We ordered coffee (which was very nice) and were served quickly and...efficiently. The staff were polite and friendly and there were plenty of places to sit. The ambiance of the tearoom was warm and welcoming with a pretty aesthetic - will definitely be returning! :)More

A lovely farm shop and cafe. We visited here because we wanted somewhere that served breakfast and was dog friendly! Such a lovely setting with outdoor and indoor seating! Well behaved dogs allowed indoors. We ordered 2 full English breakfasts and it was delicious! They...also had a counter filled with yummy choices of pies, quiches, salads etc which you can eat in or buy to take away, so didn’t miss the opportunity to buy a few goodies to enjoy later in the day as well. Very prompt and friendly service, clean and spacious and in a very pretty setting! Can’t recommend enough!More

A very pleasant family setting with catering for children's meals and outdoor climbing frames and swings. Two donkeys in a field to observe. Food is of a very high standard and quality. However there is a very serious problem with wasps and they admit to...having a severe problem by offering you a swat with which to fend them off. My wife and I were seated inside and after our food arrived, we immediately had 5-6 wasps around us attracted by our soft drinks and sweet pickle that came with my cheese board. We decided to move outside, which compounded the problem even further, we were swarmed and I was stung on the neck is less than two minutes. I was impossible to complete our meal in these conditions and abandoned it. We explained to the manager our dilemma and asked for a refund, which was flatly refused and told that the wasps were not her fault. I agree, it is not her fault, but at least make a goodwill gesture and take steps to eradicate the problem. They offered us a swat with our meal, which as mentioned before is and admission of having a serious problem. So to all out there with potential allergies to wasp stings, DO NOT GO THERE.More

We visited here on July 9th and had a morning to forget after a metal fence (which hadn’t been installed properly) fell on our daughter and trapped her. The large fence had been put around the park to stop children using it. However the fence...was only kept standing by two bits of rope tied to trees, which we were unaware of. There were also toys just a metre or so in front of the fence encouraging children to play. The fences were literally balancing on the grass (from a distance they looked like they were dug into the ground) with nothing securing them. Fortunately our daughter was okay. However, the manager didn’t once come out to see if we were okay or if we needed anything. Several people complained before us and when we finally went in, we got a very brief sorry and told that the contractor who installed the fences had been called. I even heard her shout to one of the staff to relay the information on for her if anyone else asked about the fences. I don’t blame or fault any of her staff, and I wouldn’t even have written this post if the manager had come out and checked to see if we were okay. That is all it took. She did, in the end, offer us some free food, but only after several discussions. This isn’t a complaint about the food which is very good, but the way this potentially very awful situation was handled is one they need to learn from so this doesn’t happen to anyone again.More

Due to Covid breakfast was still in a barn with big open door, but parasols have little heaters underneath, and there are blankets and lumpy cushions to sit on the benches. Full English breakfast is very good quality and delicious, except the winter tomato. Many...cyclists stop there for buns and sandwiches.More
