“Fantastic location”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

What an awesome location just off the busy A69 - felt like we were in the depths of the countryside. We stopped for a coffee but ended up having lunch sat outside the lovely café. I had scrambled eggs with parma ham and it came with some sun-dried tomatoes and lightly toasted French bread. Fabulous for £5.75! And the service was lovely.

My only slight criticism is the coffee was very ordinary - I can't understand why so many cafes serve such poor coffee (I like it strong and black, Nero's is the best)

We didn't fish but the fishing looked good - the sort of thing that anyone could do. We also noticed they do kids events for c.£10 per head which would be a fun event for a birthday party.

Thank you for choosing to stop at our fishing park for lunch and coffee. I'm very pleased to read you enjoyed our location and noted the facilities we have on offer here. However I am disappointed to read that you felt our coffee was ordinary and of a poor standard. Before opening our BITE cafe last year I personally spent a year sampling and choosing the perfect coffee for us. It is 100% Arabica, of a medium roast and is triple certified (which means it is organic, Fairtrade and supports the Rainforest Alliance). I am as 'passionate' about my coffee as I am about my tea (we serve loose leaf tea at BITE) and I chose this particular roast of coffee to suit the majority of tastes (it is light, soft and sweet). From what you describe, I think perhaps a dark roast better suits your palate. I do hope you choose to visit us again and I thank you for taking the time to leave us a 5 star review. Katharine

Reviewed 2 February 2014

started fly fishing again after many years, and came to new mills after a friend told me about the
quality of fish being caught. I wasn't disappointed and have caught good size fish on many occasions now. the owners are very helpful and i have purchased everything i needed for fly fishing from the well stocked shop. a great fishery to visit.
