About
Broom House Farm Coffee Shop is a small Cafe next to an award winning Farm Shop that specialises in producing the finest beef, pork and lamb from this organic farm. The Coffee Shop makes use of the farm's produce throughout its menu - from traditional breakfasts to modern brunches, soups, sandwiches, burgers, salads and snacks. There are always a delicious range of cakes on display to enjoy with a cup of locally roasted coffee. Bookings are taken for Afternoon Tea. In the winter a roaring fire cheers the Coffee Shop and in the summer months doors open wide on to a sun deck with a vast play field beyond...and beyond that, a Forest Adventure awaits. Parking is free of charge.

We booked for brunch on a Sunday. Poached eggs on wild mushrooms on artisan bread with Parmesan and balsamic ... breakfast with a difference, beautifully presented, delightful young woman serving us, prompt service. And visiting the farm area with the piglets was an additional treat.

Thanks so much, we're so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your toasties, we slow cook the beef for hours in the bourbon to make it meltingly tender and tasty! Hope to see you again soon for cake!
