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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

First visit in a long time but after today's experience I'll be back sooner. Amazing lunch with very good portions. The two servers for our group (in a side room) were excellent; very polite and attentive.

Lovely location with views to die for! Food homemade and beautifully cooked. We particularly love the lasagne! Service polite and non obtrusive but friendly too. Food can take awhile to arrive during busier periods but that’s not a problem for us as we are on...holiday and not in a race against time!More

Excellent food including home made cakes. We tend to book during the season or for a Sunday. Plenty of parking and worth the drive. Friendly staff, clean and spacious.

Disappointing on the whole. The prawn skewers and salad was very minimal , not enough for a normal adult. The cream tea scone was hard and dry, needing to be returned. The worst part was the 50 minute wait time. We were told after we...had ordered and paid that it would be a 30 minute wait but this extended to almost an hour and my pregnant daughter was feeling weak and faint by then. Staff were unapologetic and merely attempted to justify their inabilities. Will not go back.More

Outstanding Sunday dinner! Went with two little ones and my mom and enjoyed an incredible Sunday dinner. The lamb was melt in the mouth to die for! As were the puddings! Hot cross bun bread and butter pudding was heavenly. Really reasonably priced. Relaxed atmosphere...which is great when dining with busy children! We've already planned to go back.More

Long wait to get the scones, Staff very helpful. The room, bare of soft furnishings, echoes loudly and it was very difficult to hear even a neighbour.

Great food, great service, great setting. Stopped En-route to campsite as haven't stopped in for a couple.of years since Covid gloom. As ever there was a friendly greeting and helpful staff. Drinks arrived within 10mins and food followed after another 15mins or so. The whole...experience was great. The washrooms are very clean and the tables cleared quickly. The garden is a lovely spot with a view over the hills but can be very windy. There is a kids farm next door and a campsite which I have never tried but looked a worthwhile visit. Will always happily visit here after having never had a bad meal in several stops now. Great sized, tasty portions and lovely ladies. Please do give them a try. Also selling jams, chutneys and local food stuff to take home. Well done teacup.More

We booked a table for a small family gathering on Mother’s Day. Generous portions of delicious meats, tasty vegetables and traditional accompaniments were all served with a smile. Puddings here are absolutely fabulous. We opted for various homemade delights including a yummy apple and plum...crumble, with ice cream and custard, panacotta with poached rhubarb and cream filled brandy snap, Black Forrest roulade and the most spectacular lemon meringue cheesecake I have ever eaten! Brilliant value, excellent service and amazing food. Highly recommended.More

I visit with 2 small children after taking them to soft play. Always receive a warm welcome. Thoughtful touches to make visiting with small children as relaxed as possible. The children love the cod goujons, I've enjoyed the tasty sausages, tuna jacket potatoes and the...mulled apple juice. Portion sizes are very generous and the food is well presented. Thank you for making our visits a pleasure.More

What a delightful place to enjoy a festive Sunday lunch; with staff that were very pleasant and helpful. Roast Turkey with sausage meat ‘pigs in blankets’, apricot stuffing and fresh, flavoursome vegetables; you really could not ask for more. Homemade Christmas Pudding and Brandy gelato...made a perfect end to a wonderful meal.More

Visited here today for lunch and we were so impressed with the way the cafe had been changed to adapt to Covid safety measures - plenty of hand sanitiser too! Lunch was fabulous. Two huge pork sausages, two fried eggs, crispy but fluffy chips and...a homemade relish. Staff were friendly and efficient. Brilliant.More

When we visited there were dogs with their owners on the outside seating but wouldn't think they're allowed inside, except of course guide dogs. Hope this helps but you can always give them a ring to check!
