What a disappointment! We booked ahead and arrived on time, within minutes of being seated our order was taken. About 20 minutes later our drinks arrived, after a further 25 minutes we asked if our food would arrive soon. We were not offered an apology for the delay, but were told it wouldn't be long and we were next. We... More

This was our 3rd try since change of ownership, and it was no better. Waiting time is totally unacceptable, especially when only waiting for uncooked items? The first time we put it down to settling in but nothing changed by last visit. Also when the food was brought up not as described in menu and I complained it was just... More

Very cold. Bad draft everytime door opened. I ordered the burger. Waited 45mins for our food. Burger itself was ok but the bun was poor. A 10p Sesame seed bun that was dry and crumbled away. Fries were average, typically cheap tasting. Lettuce was starting to turn brown, it was bagged lettuce which I hate with a passion, £10 for... More

A great place for a light lunch, now open again, new management & improving all the time. Very reasonably priced (£7.50 for a cream tea for 2!!) Give it a look, long with the shop stocking fab local produce, it may not be very big but it makes up for it with the quality of the food & drink

Interesting and slightly quirky tea room with an eclectic style leaning towards the nostalgic; as part of a developing farm shop complex in the village of Assington I have watched this venue gradually develop and improve over the last few years and am very pleased that the business appears to continue to improve despite the poor economy. The food and... More

We stopped off for a light lunch on our way to the Case nearby. Very pleasant setting looking out at the Shetland pony and the emus. Plenty of choice of sandwiches, paninis , baguettes etc. We chose to share a sandwich and a fruit scone. Both were very nice. Sandwich served with salad, coleslaw and some crisps. There's also a...

Great food for reasonable prices, lovely gifts to buy in the shop. Excellent farm shop next door and animals out the back. Plenty of choice of drinks and cakes on the menu as well as savoury items. Plenty of seating both inside and out.
