Was looking forward to the trip. Unfortunately it appears that it has not been running at at all to its potential. Lots of building material in a lot of places. Dough making was not as advertised. Pub is not a pub, it's just a type...More

According to their website the opening hours at 10-5 in October. But if you don't know the area you'd be wise to leave before it gets dark so as to navigate the lanes back to the main road!
