    I made a reservation after visiting with my mother in law. When my husband and I turned up, apparently they weren’t taking reservations even though I booked through their own Open Table system! The kitchen was closed, the coffee machine had broken and waited 20 - 30 mins for a hot chocolate! Whilst staff were friendly, they were distributing the drinks orders to the wrong people and didn’t know what was going on! Food was nice but that is about it. Quite frankly this visit was a disaster. Had this been my first experience, we wouldn’t return whatsoever. Whilst I will to l ‘yes to recommend’ this is strictly on basis on my first experience when the kitchen is open, which I hope returns sooner rather than later before the restaurant builds a poor reputation.

    Visited many times for coffee but this was the first time for breakfast. The pancakes with maple syrup and bacon were perfect! You could tell that they had just come off the griddle (rather than reheated like some places), delicious bacon and plenty of syrup. Always love how friendly the staff are and that they genuinely welcome dogs. A great place for a casual catch up with friends or a treat after a dog walk.

    Good food, easy booking on line great cafe. My friend had peavacado, very good, I had bacon sandwich, which could have been a bit more exciting as it was literally just bacon and bread with a sauce to pour over. But would definitely return to try other things on the menu. Overall we were both impressed on our first visit

    It’s beautiful and we were able to eat outside as requested. It was my husband’s birthday. We asked for some special requests for the food which they were able to do. However we have ordered the same before and there seemed a lot less of it this time. Also it took over 45 mins for our food to arrive, but at least the kids had a beautiful garden and a mild day to run around.

    Lovely setting but some issues. Table was not available at booked time and the wait for food was extremely long. Difficult when there are children. Food good when it came but took so long and we didn’t want to wait and queue again for drinks. Table ordering could have helped. Would not recommend weekends to friends.

    We ordered the bacon sandwich which was quite small with over toasted bread and a strange cold sauce . We felt it was very expensive and definitely not the best bacon sandwich by a long way . We looked enviously at what others were having as it looked a lot better .

    We love it here and visit on a regular basis - it is a bit pricey but the food is good. The reason we didnt rate higher is that there is always a long wait time on food and often items sell out quickly or are unavailable - We love the fresh choice and locally sourced, garden produced items - this is why we come back and forgive the bits which are able to improve

    We had a lovely meal on a sunday afternoon after a nice walk. There was a lovely atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. However, we (and everyone around us) waited really long for our food, maybe 1hr from ordering. The food itself, a pulled pork burger and sausage and mash, was totally fine, a little cold but still tasty. We would come back as we like the location and venue but it could be better if the food was faster and piping hot.

    Lovely location even in December. Friendly staff although service was horribly slow - it took nearly an hour to bring our table’s four dishes! Food was ok, but not that hot. I had the Stilton sausage, roasted veg and chips and the cup of gravy took up 1/3 of the plate?! MIL loved the vegan pancakes with berry compote. Overall just not that great…

    Was so looking forward to this but food took 35 mins to come out and was lukewarm.. very cold due to main door being wide open on a day when it was 5 degrees outside.The stew was chilli con carne which was ashame as thought it was actually going to be a stew.

    Waited over 40 minutes for food. My husband’s meal arrived stone cold so replacement meal of beef stew requested as seemed like a quicker option. This arrived after another wait and was also cold but in patches??? A partly cold beef stew sounds like a health risk. The whole experience was miserable and frankly stressful with us constantly inquiring about our food Our nice relaxing meal was ruined and I was also made to feel unreasonable when I asked for a refund for both meals. Do you think I enjoyed mine at all? There were plenty of empty tables inside and out so not rushed off their feet. Some staff were lovely and tried to help but we had a totally miserable time.

    We turned up on time for the table but unfortunately had to wait 20mins as the table was being used. The food sounded great but didnt really deliver, we ordered the Hash (which wasn’t like any hash we have had before, not in a good way) and the Eggs Cochon. They had run out black pudding for the hash and it really was bacon and egg on toast (poached eggs where over cooked) the Eggs Cochon had again over cooked eggs, pea purée on toast and lovely crispy bits of Chorizo. Toast was cold and soggy and in fact everything was Luke warm. Overall under whelming food in a lovely location

    Brilliant quick service, with fantastic food. Arrived a little late which was no problem, all servers were happy and greeted us with a big smile, nothing was too much, the portions were fair, I could't finish mine, and the fact it was all gluten free was a big plus. Would recomend.

    Excellent greeting, had reserved 2 tables for us to ensure we had the most suitable for a wheelchair. 30 minute wait for food, was delicious and well presented. All serving staff were friendly and helpful. Lots of children and dogs so quite hectic. Would definitely visit again, maybe midweek next time.

    It’s a lovely space and location. It’s a shame the menu isn’t a little more varied - I can’t eat bread and the GF was unavailable leaving me with very little choice as the menu is largely bread-based. Butternut and sweet potato soup pretty tedious choice of flavour. Food was served by a man with strong BO. For some reason dogs are allowed inside. One dog was very agitated and was barking a lot, yet was not taken outside by the owner or asked to do so by the cafe, which made for an unrelaxing time. We were given cupcakes by way of apology - why not just address the issue? Overall disappointed by a lunch with parents we were really looking forward to.

    Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. I will be taking your feedback regarding 'made without gluten' options not being available to the team, as this is unacceptable. We take diet requirements very seriously and should always have a range of options available to support this. We do have a friendly dog policy, however this shouldn't affect other diners, we will be improving on this. We do hope you return and see some change, as we take your feedback on board.

    Very slow (albeit friendly) service. Didn’t have a lot of the choices on the menu. The vegan ‘soup’ was mostly an oily broth and the beef stew was far too salty.
