“Afternoon tea ruined by surley waitress”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

No problem with the shop or cafe itself. Waited about 10 mins to be served. Not particularly busy. Waitress abrupt and sullen when asking what we wanted. At 2.45 had run out of scones(they were on sale in the farm shop). Ordered our tea, my husband had cake which was good. The cafe was hot so we told the staff at the till that we would go outside. After finishing, my husband went inside and paid the bill. As we were walking away our waitress came running after us and asked if we were going to pay. We said that we had and we were questioned again in front of customers. Not a pleasant experience. Won't visit again.

“Excellent lunch”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Visited the Falconry Centre then went to the small exhibition. There is a lovely shop with local produce where we purchase local honey and biscuits! we then had lunch in the Cafe which was very nice and reasonably priced.

“Gorgeous farm shop”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

We get meat from here regularly as a bit of a treat - it's certainly not cheap but it is excellent. In addition, we have had our Christmas three-bird-roast from here for three years running, and it's GREAT. Also, the shop sells some quirky 'artisan' foods - a while ago I found some Turkish Delight flavoured ice cream which was pretty special :)

“Interesting couple of hours”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

Visiting a battlefield is the kind of suggestion that usually sends my family running as visiting an empty piece of countryside is not for most people. However the free museum was very interesting - the model of the future Henry V with an arrow in his face made my 10 year olds day! The farm shop and cafe were both excellent - nice to be able to support local producers. (Some good books about the battle in the shop) The walk round the battlefield and a visit to one of the very few battlefield churches in the country was very moving. Worth a visit if you're in that part of the world.
