Went for lunch with my sister and took the kids, we ordered chicken burger and a beef burger, both where cooked perfectly dressing was good. kids ate all there chicken and chips and they are fussy.
Only thing is that the waiting staff should be a bit more friendly and welcoming and also familiarise where customers are sitting, it’s a bit off putting watching your dinner doing a lap of the garden then the dining room before arriving to your table.

You can choose to eat inside or outside in the garden. Either choice is lovely. Very nice atmosphere. Homemade pies and other delicious choices. This is a good place for a break from touring or a lunch stop.

Restaurant is kept tidy and clean,some of the waiting staff have learning difficulties ,they are well trained and supervised and are good at their jobs,chatty and always pleasant.The cafe looks out onto a garden,weather permitting you can eat outdoors.

Called in for lunch for 2, bright pleasant atmosphere. With striking gardens. Fortunately the mind numbing loud music was off today hopefully it will stay off. Food is fairly good and very reasonably priced. Yes I would recommend. Staff that served me were excellent and showed great customer care skills which for me means leaving a good tip. Frequently visited by overseas callers giving an international ambience. I wish the cafe well.

Called in for a coffee and a snack before our train ... ordered for 6 of us .. coffee hot chocolate tray bakes etc... they started to make this for us then asked what tour group we were with ... we weren't with a tour and we were politely told that the coffee shop was only for your parties... we left!

Not sure what they were going to with 6 half made hot drinks!
