“A lovey cafe. We popped in one day for a coffee and came back the next day for some lunch. I had a ham and cheese panini and it was delicious, the cheese was so creamy and nice. Staff are all lovely and welcoming. There is a fantastic deli next door which is well worth a visit. Would recommend a visit if you are passing by.”

“Just visited the cafe for lunch, lovely spot for lunch and a coffee and the food and facilities were great. Our first time using the south paddock for our dogs. Really nice set up so dogs don't meet at the gates, secure field and loads of space for zoomies. Our boys really enjoyed it. Really peaceful. We will be back and highly recommend. 👍”

“Busy and very doggy on our visit. Dogs are obviously welcome and if your ok with this you’ll get on fine. Service was a little hit and miss but I think we arrived a very busy moment so hopefully it’s not normally like this. Decent food and nice tea, perfect for a sunny autumn afternoon.”
