Cheese and ham panini....... £6 plus. Small slithers of cheap ham and a sprinkling of cheese accompanied by half a field of average salad. Not good quality or standard. I have visited numerous times over the years and have had some great English breakfast but this visit shall be my last.

Hi there

Glad to hear you enjoyed your visits when it was the farm shop ;0)

When you think of farm, the expectations are of fresh home cooked food from the fields, unfortunately it's straight from the freezer. Nice friendly service, but the place could do with some love and the heating turned up.

The room was freezing, heating not working. Food took ages and only half of our order arrived, had to pester staff for the rest which arrived when 2 of us had finished eating. Veg overcooked and flavourless. Reminded me of school dinners.

I do like this place. We have had a number of meals, light lunches, and Sunday lunches.
Inside has a number of different seating arrangements, from sofas to tables. Ideal for having a coffee with friends, or, having meals where a table is required.

Staff were very helpful. Coffee and tea good.

The only downside with a 17 month old toddler, wishing to explore, the outside soft play area is much too cold at this time of year. This meant running around the cafe and shop monitoring their every move. Other parents/grandparents had the same issues.

The available high chairs were really helpful in toddler control and feeding.

Could be a safety issue if busy.

Thanks
