We stopped here for food on the way to St. Lucia. We were greeted with a large lodge with friendly staff, a good shop and a cheese tour. We had a great rest stop here and everyone was friendly and accommodating.

Friendly staff, clean premises. You can however smell that you are on a farm which is expected. Make sure you are hungry before coming here. Huge burgers and sandwiches. Cheese is home made on the farm from goats milk. Worth the detour from the road....More
