Love this place, will continue to return whenever we around this neck of the woods. Good sandwiches, yummy cakes and great cream teas. Dog friendly too. Visit the Forge over the road to see the blacksmith at work.

Great to find blacksmiths doing lovely work true craftsmanship The gifts are beautiful if a little expensive. It's the only thatched forge in the U.K. The Cafe was not open which was disappointing as it's close till next year.

What a pleasant surprise to have a smiling waitress (obviously happy with her job) and really pleasant and helpfull. Excellent food and a delightful place to sit in the sun surrounded by nature. Makes you sigh with contentment. Don't miss this place😊
