Had another lovely meal here, despite the intermittent power cuts. Although there isn't a vast menu, the food is really very good. Service good too.

Stopped for cream tea and sandwiches-Sadly did not live up to expectations as the crockery was stained, dirty and chipped. The menus had food residue and were sticky. Quite off-putting and inexcusable.More

A really nice place to stop and grab a quick snack or drink. A beautiful garden facing the stream and some pretty basic snacks to offer.
