Fresh good wholesome food in a lovely atmosphere. Remember to book though, this place is very popular. Always a favourite for brunch, lunch or afternoon tea.

Delicious breakfast beautifully and swiftly served. Tea spot on too. It was all so good we had elevenses as well! Cappacinno and lemon drizzle cake highly recommended. This remains one of our firm favourites in the area!

The address on the website does not really help a SatNav get you direct to the door, butit was not too hard to find (Stay on the A35 until you see the sign for Lytchett Matravers). The barn is certainly a barn but inside it...More

I visited here on Wednesday to catch up with my Grandparents. We'd booked a table thankfully as it was very popular. Busy is never a bad thing though, it means the place must be good! I love the decor of this cafe is so quaint...More
