Beautiful setting, lovely freshly prepared food, relaxed atmosphere and dog friendly. I would also recommend visiting their shop for their lovely selection of home baked breads.

Lovely little quaint place, interesting history of the water mill, nice gift shop. The restaurant/cafe is outstanding. Lovely ham and cheese sandwich on thick rustic crusty bread. Cream teas delicious. Staff friendly. Would revisit again.
