Main courses weren't great, pasta dish very heavy on the chilli and Mac & Cheese very lacking in sauce/stodgy. Would have given feedback at the time but wait staff didn't bother to enquire how the meal was.
Chocolate brownie was fab
Would recommend a visit for coffee and cake but not a meal

Quick and polite service, but the food tasted like it was cooked ahead and warmed up - although this did make service very quick, it affected the quality

The staff were very nice and very friendly!

But the food came out cold so it wasn’t very enjoyable at all.

Thank you

Great service and great food!

Went early so wasn’t too busy and the value of money wasn’t bad considering location.

Nothing special, limited breakfast menu and out of avocado-not great for at Sat morning. Waitress was being monitored by another member of staff but limited vocabulary which made her communication limited and abrupt. Typical mediocre service.

Hi, my wife and I had a lovely breakfast, we were seated by one of your staff within 10 minutes of leaving I had a email saying we never turned up, so I had to go back and to a member of staff to sort it out. And it was a bit cold in there whick made our breakfast go cold very quickly.

Super polite staff.
Food prepared quickly.
Lovely fresh food, and generous portions.

Delicious food we had the full English breakfast . Service was good and staff were attentive. It was a little bit noisy think the music could have been a bit lower and it could have been warmer in the restaurant

As a family of four, we booked for 5.30pm and visited the Farmshop to eat following a shopping trip to Bicester.
For starters we shared the garlic bread with cheese and mozzarella balls. We all enjoyed these but I particularly liked the sour dough based garlic bread.
Our mains were the chicken salad, tiger prawn tagliatelle, fish & chips and the Farmhouse burger.
All the meals were good portions and really well presented.
Service was great with all the staff friendly and helpful.
Add on the 2 cocktails, a prosecco and coke and the bill was just over £100 which I thought was perfectly reasonable.
Overall we had a nice experience following some stressful shopping..

Oh, I forgot to mention that half way home to London we got a call from the restaurant to say we had forgotten one of our shopping bags.. we were horrified but very very grateful that they were happy to post the bag bag to us at no charge! Received it today.. Thank you!!!

My second visit. Overall an average experience. Wouldn’t rush back. Meat was over cooked and no peppercorn sauce available. Was replaced with new plate.

Extremely expensive and the food was just OK.

£18 for half a roast chicken without any sides.... ridiculous.... since when has a simple roast chicken cost £36 in a restaurant / Cafe?

Probably due to the nature of the wooden tables, however ours was extremely sticky and therefore gives the impression they are not being cleaned properly.

The girls serving were very pleasant and accommodating, however the couple of guys there were more like bouncers than pleasant waiters.

Overall a VERY disappointing and expensive experience which I will not be repeating.

Our waitress was extremely attentive and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for her. She got a cushion for our daughter when asked, was attentive and clearly knew when we required extra drinks etc. I cannot praise her enough. She was really on the ball when our daughter was sick after eating too much ‘Mac & cheese’. She did not complain or fuss, she was straight on to clearing up the mess and organised those around her extremely effectively.

The food was delicious, portions were extremely generous and pricing very competitive.

Couldn’t recommend this restaurant enough.

Food was excellent and so was our waiter. I could not give ambience or noise a true grading as we sat outside with our dog. Shame the outdoor seating is at the back but would still go again.

It was hard to get the attention of staff but once we did, they were very helpful and friendly. The portions were large and the food was lovely. The overall ambiance was rustic and homemade. The discount for being a local is great. Thank you.

The staff were great, very friendly and knowledgable. The food was delicious, and great value for money. We had the full breakfast to set us up for the day, and it was exactly what we needed. Every ingredient was perfectly cooked (the poached eggs were just wow), the amount was exactly right without being too much. All in all, a great breakfast experience and highly recommended as a way to start the day.
If I had to find fault, and really it’s a minor minor thing, then the only thing I could think of is that maybe the butter for the toast needed to be warmed slightly to make it easier to spread. But it didn’t detract from what was a wonderful breakfast that we both really enjoyed.

Great for pre cinema supper. No complaints on food, service or restaurant area but the toilets were a mess and it was only 7:30pm.....
