Ordered sandwiches, plus a gluten free and a vegan afternoon tea, at fairly short notice. It was all amazing, very well presented, ready for collection at the time arranged.

Ordered 3 individually boxed afternoon teas for my Mother in Law’s lockdown birthday and a couple of friends. They enjoyed a virtual tea party in their own homes. Great selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes, excellent quality and quantity, highly recommend!

We’ve literally driven out here just for an ice cream, coffee or a sausage roll. Food is excellent and staff are exceptional. Hungry, thirsty, peckish, or wanting a treat to eat? Stop here.

Always a pleasure to go to The Grocer Chef. Food is always top notch and the staff are equally as good. I had the coronation chicken in jacket potato - just the right amount of spice in the chicken. My best friend had the scampi...and salad - and real scampi - not this fake stuff you get at some restaurants. Great service, great food and reasonably priced.More

Stopped off for brekkie en route to a meeting, not my normal breakfast stop, but it opens at 8am so I can leave very early, have breakfast and get to my meeting refreshed. No veggie breakfast on the menu. I don't know why but I...always find that rude. I don't want to be an after-thought or have to make a fuss. Of course they could cook me a veggie breakfast without the sausage and bacon, great, but forgot to check if they would cook in vegetable oil. Hope they did. Breakfast was good. Not great, but perfectly fine. Good value at £8. The coffee was a bit bitter. The staff were lovely, very chatty and friendly. Parking is a nightmare until you find out that you can park in the residents parking areas. Otherwise leave your car on the side of the road somewhere and walk. Would probably come back, it's a bit off the beaten track but looks like a pretty village.More

Some community cafes can make visitors feel like intruders - not here! The mix of locals, commuters and walkers gave a buzzing atmosphere and the staff couldn't have been friendlier. This lovely modern conversion offers lovely home-made food in a comfortable, clean and spacious setting....The menu ranges from sandwiches and jackets to omelettes and a whopping serving of gammon, egg, pineapple & chips. Parking is a bit restricted, but there is a visitors car park just down the road and the village is fascinating to walk around.More

Have been visiting The Grocer Chef for years. Usually for a coffee and a cake but recently taking in their lunch menu. The one constant through all the visits is the “great” - couple this to food, coffee, service, people and atmosphere - it all...works. Other coffee shops and restaurants oscillate up and down in terms of food and service. The Grocer Chef just keep the quality bar really high. Keep up the great work.More
