    Really enjoyed our afternoon teas : one savoury and one sweet. Suited us extremely well. The service was very good - perhaps the tables for two are a little small to fit everything on, but that is a minor complaint.

    Not the first time we have been, excellent and the waitresses so friendly, smart and obliging. If anything left not eaten ask if you want a goodie box to take remainder home.Access to the café,probably due to CovId, is from the farm shop so if raining take an umbrella as one has to go outside. I was on a small type buggy and had a job to get through to the café because of the freezers and the door being so narrow. Anyone on a roadtype would not have got through but probably a different way if one asks the farm shop staff. I did find a different way back to the carpark. Would certainly go again, came away stuffed and with a goodie box. One can buy vouchers for presents, would certainly recommend this

    The tea served was tepid by the time the food arrived which was 20 minutes after we arrived. Sausage roll was hard to cut. We were bothered by wasps which spoilt it for us!

    Lovely place for Afternoon Tea, staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful and the food was all very nicely presented. We had the traditional afternoon tea which consisted of a selection of three different sandwiches and one sausage roll on the first layer of the tea stand. The second was a vast selection of cakes and the top layer was scones, jam and clotted cream. For us the sweet selection was a little too much and just a little bit sickly. For us personally we would have preferred a little more savoury items but if you have a sweet tooth then this is ideal for you. There was a lot to eat for two people and recommend that you ask for a little box to take your cakes home for later. Its really lovely for a treat and we would definitely go again.

    This was a Christmas gift from our lovely friends. This was one of the best afternoon teas we have had, we decided to have one savoury so we could share, still took half home, would definitely go again, the restaurant was set out lovely, staff were amazing, no complaints what so ever. Thank you.
