Driving past looking for somewhere for breakfast and found this place. Ordered breakfast and drinks and a cake for my wife. Breakfast came very quickly and was hot and good quality ingredients but there was no sign of drinks and cake! My wife ended up asking about them, as I had finished my breakfast, and unfortunately they had been forgotten!... More

Visited on a late Saturday afternoon. Quite busy but managed to get a table for 2, beautiful views of the vineyard outside. Delicious coffee and beautiful quiche, all reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend this place for and afternoon lunch or just coffee catch up! Will be visiting again!

Was passing by and decided to stop for a quick coffee. Lovely coffee shop, very friendly staff. Had more than just a coffee in the end, my husband had the full breakfast and I had scrambled eggs on toast. Both were wonderful, great sausage, all well cooked. Lots of toast, my husband asked if he could pay for a packet... More

As a regular visitor I can highly recommend this Coffee House.

I can see why it was considered a good location for a coffee shop - the views are great and the development is nicely done. I have friends who consider this a regular and preferred place to meet for coffee, cake, lunch or whatever. It's not top of my list however. I'll explain why whilst trying to be fair. The... More

Lovely spot to stop have a little lunch or tea with a lovely view across the hills and orchard. The coffee shop is good value. The farm shop however is just so expensive. My advice is have your lunch and byepass the shop unless you have more money than sence.
