Friendly welcome. I had a great Kofta Kebab special and my wife Falafel. Good food from a good range. The farmshop is well stocked with lots of culinary delights, Eco Friendly products and good Gluten Free range. Good range of beer too.

Driven past numerous times on my way to Scotland and back and always admired the sheep on the grass roof. Today I finally stopped! The 'small' falafel salad was so big I couldn't finish it and the chocolate milkshakes were delicious. Helpful staff and clean...More
