Make a detour and visit this wonderful retro cafe! Some of the best sticky fruit fruit cake we have tasted and delicious cherry shortbread. Looking forward to our next visit.

We popped in for lunch and were quite surprised there were only six items on the menu! The homity pie was relatively tasteless and the salad consisted of beetroot leaves and shredded cabbage. My husband had soup and a very small crust of bread. The cakes were a real disappointment. The yoghurt cake was burnt at the bottom and the... More

I've visited this cafe several times and have found the cakes, smoothies and lunches to be delicious. Sadly, having only visited last week, today there were no lunches on offer. The owner is away. It would have been helpful if an advance notice was posted so that we could have been saved a wasted journey. We only wanted a salad.... More

With all the best plans and intentions in the world, in place for the three days, both of my key staff were unable to cover at the last minute due to illness, Alice is still recovering from a nasty dog bite and had to go to hospital. With Facebook and twitter notification in place and an apology on the board,... More

I have visited this great little cafe several times recently, mainly when I have been shopping at the organic farm shop next door. The speciality teas, coffee and cakes are excellent and I am looking forward to returning soon for lunch, as the specials looked so very tempting.

Cakes are home made, generous portions and delicious. Food is excellent with a varied choice of locally sourced food with a special flavoursome twist. Lovely 60's/70's decor and... More

This new café is a wonderful place to visit. Set amongst the interesting shops and gallery at Gold Hill Farm, the food is freshly made and delicious. The soups make a perfect lunch and the cakes are SO good. I would travel a long way for one of their Flapjacks!
