I got given the gift of a voucher for a tasting for two - now I wouldn't normally have picked this out of the long list of tastings for two I could have used the voucher for, but it was a gift so I was happy to take a risk, and I'm really pleased I did. I got introduced to a whole new sub-culture of horticulture I didn't know existed, being as I am the kind of person to whom a chilli is a chilli but the talk and the following tour of the poly tunnels was perfectly pitched for someone with a general interest in new things like myself, and also for the more erudite chilli heads in the group who added their own observations and experiences to the mix. We ate in the cafe before hand. The food was lovely, fresh, tasty, featuring chilli with and in virtually everything as you can imagine. Service though was decidedly disorganised - we were told at one point that there was no record of our order and invited to order again, but maybe it was a technical glitch with the electronic tablets the (very young and inexperienced and charming) floor staff were using to take orders. Also, they have very limited opening hours, so if you are doing the afternoon tour/tasting, allow yourself time to sample a couple of courses before as there won't be time afterwards. The owners are very hands on which added to the atmosphere - they clearly have a great passion and care for their visitors and have worked really hard to grow the business, it's a matter of personal pride and it shows in the details. Another plus is they didn't go for the hard sell during or after the tasting bit of the event - they were simply satisfied to share their love. Intend to return.
