Come and try it for yourselves. Lunches in the café change daily, closely following progress in the garden. There is a good selection of fresh salads, a main dish of the day and fresh soup. Also cakes, drinks, a large selection of eco/organic/environmentally friendly magazines to browse your way through, a woodburner in the winter months and a south facing verandah (a quiet space) for some quiet chill time in the summer. Families/guests with kids can enjoy the front garden which has a small play area and lots of space to play.
There is always a vegan option.
The Award Winning Cafe is inspired by the vegetable garden that surrounds it. Winning in the past 'Best Cafe in the South West of England' and Editor's Choice for the south and south west of England from Les Routiers. It was chosen for the enterprising and innovative style!
Well behaved children are welcomed here.
We have an organic child-friendly menu, high-chairs, a small outdoor play area, a lovely woodland walk (suitable for off road buggies) and a new longer farm trail, not so buggy friendly, which takes about 45 minutes, and takes in lots of animals and nature. just follow the arrows the other side of the woodland walk. sorry no dogs on this side of the farm.
Dog owners, however, can walk their dogs on our permissive footpath the other side of the A429, about a mile from the traffic lights on the left is a gated road going onto the farm again. half a mile down the lane is a gate on the right with an arrow. park tight in to the side so our tractors can pass and walk up thro ragged hedge wood (original site for the fair in 1996) and round the fields in a circle back to the car. lovely walk, about an hour right round.
