“Great place for Ice cream and does a good lunch too”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We regularly go here when visiting family who live in Devizes to get some of the great Ice Cream. They always have a selection of standard flavours such as Vanilla and chocolate and then amazing combinations which taste great such as Strawberry cheesecake, Peaches and Cream or Exotic Swirl. You can also have any of the ice cream flavours turned into a milkshake which is really good too. The have good indoor seating with a wood fire for winter and outdoor seating for the summer. The café here is also good but can get very busy so is worth booking if going for Sunday Lunch.

“Such a good idea!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Lovely place! food is brilliant, they give such huge portions you'll never leave hungry and as for the selection of ice creams!! The staff are super friendly and plenty of animals to see. Whoever opened this had a fab idea and have pulled it off nicely!

“Group motoring breakfast meet up.”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Great location with ample parking, met here recently with an area motoring club, service was a little slow but given it was the start of the day im sure it was down to the initial opening rush, a little on the pricey side with little change of £20 for a full cooked and drink for x2 but the place is super clean and new.
Whole host of cake and ice creams on offer although we didn't sample on this occasion.
Sat outside with good views across the farm on to surrounding areas
Drop by and give it a try yourselves
