You get a good idea of life in a mill in days gone by, in the brief self guided tour. The owners are welcoming and friendly in the tea rooms. Enjoyed the cream tea.

Im glad you enjoyed your visit and the soup, although to be correct the ingredients were chili Apricot and red lentil with one of our rolls baked with our flour. I hope you get to pop in again and try a cream tea or cake
