Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

Fancy a 'proper' cup of tea and a big slice of our famous courgette cake whilst you relax in the big comfy sofas by the log burning stove? Or, a jug of Pimms to share with friends under a parasol in the new outdoor area? Are you feeling peckish? How about a full English before 12 noon, or homemade soup and a sandwich from our kitchen between 12-3? Have we twisted your arm? Ooh good, come on in to our new 85 seater café area... Café Reservations: When planning a visit to our Café at lunchtime (or for a special event such as Mother's Day/Father's Day) we strongly recommend that you call ahead or pop in and make a reservation. We are usually busy over lunchtimes and we don't want to disappoint.

If you sit at the tables outside dogs are welcome. I don't think you can take your dog inside the cafe and shop.
