This place has an amazing location!!! The view are just crazy!.. I don't think it makes up for the average everything else though. Firstly, don't go there if you're in a rush because food takes forever!The coffee was average, wouldn't order coffee there again. We had the farmers breakfast and the eggs Benedict, bacon was pretty much only fat, and... More

We wanted a quick snack and were pointed in the direction of Hillcrest. I had the grilled Halloumi wrap and although I'm not a veggie, this was one of the best wraps I've ever had. Way too big, but they boxed up the bit I couldn't eat for us to take away. The farm shop had an amazing range of... More

I have been to the Berry Farm many times and loved it. The food is not as good this year and attention to detail absent. This is sad but it is not me alone spotting it. Don't think because you are in a beautiful place good food and service don't matter. They do. I will be back in a week... More

The grounds and view are beautiful, the food was fabulously fresh and staff welcoming and attentive. The jams were so great, we bought some to go for later.

Shockingly BAD. the burger I had is the worst I have ever had. The patty was dry and tasteless. Thick and square. Placed in the middle of a round dry bun. There was no tomato. A thin strip of processed cheese that just covered the patty and a little piece of lettuce. No sauce at all. Seven chips in a... More

If you're very relaxed about slow service and in the mood to spend more money than at the average restaurant, this is a nice way to spend an afternoon. The food is tasty and freshly prepared but overpriced! For every order, request and even clearing our dishes we had to flag down a waiter rushing past our table. At one... More

Beautiful venue and the waiters are friendly. But, the food takes far too long to arrive, and when it does it is overpriced and dreadful. The béarnaise sauce, for example, turned out to be congealed butter. Come for tea and scones but steer clear of the hot foods.

Good outing for some breakfast or a light lunch. Very nice views and a great shop. Be prepared to wait a bit for food, but it is worthwhile.
