“Location, location, location”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

On a lovely sunny day this would be a great place to stop. It was rainy when we visited - table of 5 - but the place was still busy.
Food was fine and well priced; decent selection of dishes. We ate well for £70 all in.
Poor service let it down. I don't mind a mistake but several in succession was too much. The most annoying bit is not getting what we had ordered. I'd come on an office lunch outing but I couldn't trust it for a serious business trip. Get the service up to scratch and you could have a
very fine farm restaurant here.

“Service was dire!”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Lovely food and surroundings completely ruined by the haphazard disorganised runnings of the restaurant. Staff can't seem to break a smile. Wouldn't give my daughter ice with her water unless I paid for bottled water. Left feeling rather fed up :(

“Breakfast with a Fantastic view”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

A family run business which offers great food and service all day with a breathtaking view of the countryside, outside tables for those nice summer days and activities for the kids which includes a zip wire, trampoline and bouncy castle, recommend a visit!

“Could do better”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Went here for breakfast in mid-April. I was expecting quite a lot and it really was nothing to shout out about. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't great. Had the fried breakfast. The sausage was average quality and was overcooked. The bacon was slightly dry as though it had been cooked earlier that morning and put in the oven to keep but had dried out. There was no offer to refill on tea or more toast. The eggs were great - as they should be because this is predominantly a chicken farm.

Will try again for lunch or dinner because others have talked well of it but won't rush back for breakfast.
