We are delighted to be re-opening our Café doors once again. We have been working hard whilst we have been closed to make necessary changes to keep you and our team safe.

We have refreshed our menu that will also change regularly to bring you lots of new tasty dishes. However we are still bringing you delicious, simple English food that is made as fresh as possible.

At breakfast, you can have anything from simple toast to a full English breakfast. Mid-morning, we serve delicious barista-made coffee and home-made cakes.

At lunch, you can have a simple home-made sandwich, a baguette, lasagne or choose from one of our specials on the board. In the afternoon you can relax with a cup of tea and a slice of cake or try a full-blown afternoon tea (Monday – Saturday from 3pm).

Please Note: The menu is subject to change regularly if we sell out of dishes. Please call us if you have a specific requirement.

We bought our chickens from here, their keeper was knowledgeable, caring and friendly; no hard sell just good advice, reasonably priced. Nice layout, plenty going on, careful though you could easily spend a fortune.
