Have only there for breakfast but the food in the cafe is very good, the eggs royale is my favourite. Must do an afternoon tea soon. The bread and sausage shops are both brilliant.

Description
We believe in good, wholesome food, traditionally made without the use of unnecessary preservatives and colourings. We are keen to use the very best ingredients and from the closest source, keeping food miles to a minimum and our impact on the environment as small as possible. Whether you are looking for the very best quality bread for yourself, for a gift, or you’d just like to try something different, why not come and see what we have to offer. We also have a wonderful patisserie chef. We hope that you will enjoy his some of his creations: Tarte au Citron; chocolate ganache tarts; some fabulous cheesecakes; as well as delicious Tarte au Pomme. As a wonderful compliment to our bakery, we also have a farm shop with a gorgeous cheese room, Belgian chocolates, and tea from Tea Nation to name a few of our wonderfully unique products. One cannot forgot our cafe! Our chefs and bakers freshly prepares all the dishes on the menu. You can also find many goodies from the bakery on the menu.
