Good healthy food with a few subtle twists. Feeding times for the Red Kites via an in restaurant video link add an interesting dimension to customer's own dining experience.

Stopped for afternoon tea, the place was okay, but really for what it is, it is a bit pricey, you can get a lot better elsewhere quicker and cheaper

WAITING TIMES. All our food is freshly cooked to order using quality ingredients. Nothing is held in a Bain Marie, a hot cupboard or produced from plastic bags. Consequently cooking times are longer than some establishments and we would ask for your patience when waiting for food during busy periods. We believe that the wait is well worth it when the food arrives. Lynne, John and Hannah
