The setting was beautiful and serene with nature surrounding the restaurant. Our waitress was attentive and very friendly. We ordered our food and drinks and it came within five minutes of ordering. Very good service and stunning service.

A very different restaurant from the Barnyard also on the Irene Diary farm. Good food, a few less options but still very flexible. We enjoyed it tremendously !

You kind of expect food at this kind of venue to be fresh, crisp and tasty. It felt like the food came from the 90s, and considering the temperature of the food when it arrived, it may have. The chicken pie had a stray hair baked in to it. We sent it back and they were very apologetic (and we... More

After sitting down and ordering our food (Chicken Pot Pie and Chicken Curry ) we waited and waited and waited for 45 minutes. Our waiter Salome was nowhere to be seen and I eventually asked one of the ladies (with glasses) to assist us. She managed to get our order after another 15 minutes however we never saw her again...

We ate lunch there and waited 45 minutes for our food - my husband ordered a club sandwich and the presentation was disgusting - my quiche got burned so they had to start again and when it arrived it was really tasteless... Send it back and didn't pay for it - no one really apologised... Will not go there again... More

We had a lovely summer lunch here. The service is attentive and the setting tranquil. Food was good and fresh. My only complaint is that it is very busy and really noisy.

Vert busy spot. Had to wait about 15mins for a table. Had the flapjack stack. Was delicious. Staff a bit busy and rushed. Location is relaxing and back to nature.

Great place, lovely deck on a working dairy farm. Food is really good and prices are reasonable. Coffee is hot and tastes good. BUT SERIOUSLY, no free WiFi! This place needs to move with the times!

We have just had breakfast at the deck restaurant and unfortunately, the food was so so.... I had the open Spanish omelette with spicy chorizo. If one had a few hours, a tweezer and a magnifying glass, i'm sure you could find two or three tiny pieces of chorizo. I did get plenty of peas though. Unfortunately, the peas tasted... More

The pizzas are excellent, made in the traditional Italian way, with a thin base and cooked in a wood fired oven. The service was good, and the atmosphere was inviting and warm
