We’ve been going here for years. The garden is so beautiful. The cafe looks lovely and there is brilliant parking. However, the children’s playhouse is filthy. It’s so lovely but somebody could just power wash it so easily. The playground also regularly has litter laying...More

Having heard from friends how good the café was, I was disappointed at the ridiculously small slice of Victoria sponge for £3.95. When I commented I was told the cakes came to the café pre-cut. I reckon they managed 30 slices out of that one...More

Nice coffee and cakes. Have had the bacon sandwiches a couple of times which are always very nice. The best thing about this little coffee shop is the outside area which has a play area ideal for toddlers. Free parking is also a bonus.

Have only had a breakfast here, which was very average. Not particularly good value in either choice or quality. Staff rather offhand.
