Pleasant cafe with friendly service. Lunch was tasty but the coffee was very disappointing; more milk than coffee.

The food was of a very good quality despite the simple menu and the service was quick and friendly. A very enjoyable desert with drinks outside while we waited. Would recommend.

Really sorry to say that the Cider Works is still shut, following a serious fire back in April.

Bright, airy restaurant overlooking the garden with wood burning stove in winter and doors opening on to decking in summer. Good range of freshly prepared food serving breakfast Friday to Sunday inclusive from 9am to 11am, lunches 12pm to 3pm Tuesday to Sunday and afternoon tea until 4pm. Choices include full English breakfast, kippers and bubble and squeak through to gammon cooked in cider, open sandwiches and home-made pies and a range of daily specials. There is a traditional roast on a Sunday. Your meal is complimented by a range of ciders made on the premises plus a short but interesting wine list and a selection of bottled beers. Service is casual but attentive. In addition to the restaurant there is a shop selling gifts, preserves and, of course, a range of ciders to take away.
