“Absolutely outstanding”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 via mobile

We reserved a table for the evening menu for the £35 set menu. The atmosphere was lovely and the staff very friendly.
To start we both ordered venison which was divine. I had lamb three ways for main and my hubby had the steak. Both were presented beautifully and very lovely to eat. We were very full at this point but managed to find room for dessert. Hubby had cheeseboard and I had chocolate mousse with orange which was absolutely amazing.
Also to note they serve Fentimans soft drinks which are outstanding and better than the usual soft drinks choices.
We both really enjoyed our meals and would love to go back again! :)

“You get what you pay for !!”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

The choice and quality of goods is excellent especially the meat, never been disappointed. Would visit more often if it was nearer to where we live but we like to call if we're passing. It has recently been extended and has better parking facilities.

“Amazing food!”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

I've visited the cafe many times and always the food is amazing, the price you pay and the waiting time for food and drinks is well worth the quality of the food that is being served. The presentation of food is excellent and there is a good selection of choices including daily specials. While waiting for a table you can add your name to a waiting list and browse around the farm shop located next to the cafe while your name is called. The products sold with in the farm shop are all of excellent quality and locally sourced, including home made desserts (the cheesecake is amazing!!) jams, sauces and Pre prepared meals.

“Barnsleys best”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Had a lovely evening here last night. I had been before at lunchtime but not to the fine dining evenings so wasn't sure what to expect.the set menu is quite small in choices ie 3 of each course but caters for most likes and dislikes I would say unless you are a very fussy eater.
The food was excellent very good quality and presented beautifully. Clean plates all round :)
A bottle of prosecco at £20 is not too bad either.
I was there with a group of girl freinds and would definitely like to bring my husband so will be booking again soon.

You do have to book a good few weeks in advance which is the only drawback but that shows how good it is too.
