Lovely lunch sitting overlooking the village on a very warm day. Menu for lunch small but everything tasty and healthy. I had pea and mint soup served with crusty granary bread. Wonderful. Staff friendly too.Will make it a regular ace to visit.

Cycled 50 odd miles through the Cotswolds with two friends to this lovely village hoping the cafe was open. Pleasantly surprised it was and on a Sunday too. Great menu and service. Highly recommended for cyclists. Look forward to our next visit.
