“This is a gem of a place to eat”

Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 November 2018

We came for Saturday lunch a few weeks ago and we all thoroughly loved it. The place is interesting and the food was delicious. The food is presented as a buffet style and you go up and order what you would like, it is then served up and brought to your table.

It was hard to choose because it all looked so good. We will definately be back

I have been here a number of times and have had a really good experience on each occasion. The lunches are just delicious-a platter of very interesting salads with a choice of ‘main’. The cakes are gorgeous and the coffee of very good quality.
The tea shop is in an old village pub which has been refurbished and is filled with interesting and quirky items, the majority of which are for sale.
In the summer the garden is open with seating.
What’s not to like?

Amazing food in a unique and beautiful environment. Arrive early to avoid disappointment on a weekend day. The gong goes at midday then all tables go up to order food from the selection prepared. The Sunday we visited, all tables were filled by 11.45am, and most of the lunch food had gone by 2pm. Also a great place for coffee and breakfasts. Delightful garden too, a real sun trap.

Have visited Sondes various times and always scrummy food available.
It's like stepping into your own living room! Very homely and welcoming.
Had the Frittata which was devine, friends had the bruschetta both grat.
Dogs welcome here, so a lovely stop after a walk around the area

What a pleasure to visit a place where every detail has been so thoughtfully put together. Lovely people create a warmth and comfort. The food looks sensational and tastes divine. This is a place to go back to again and again. I was totally inspired by the work that has gone into creating something very special. Great teas, so much choice of everything. The croissants were perfect, the soya milk latte exceptional and the garden was a place we had to make ourselves leave!! The salads were exceptional and I want to go back for afternoon tea and the most pefect cakes now!
