We visited with friends who had little children. We felt rather anxious with the tractor driving up and down next to the bistro. There is no barrier between pathways through garden and tractor. Don’t think we will visit again with small children.More

We did the sparkling wine tasting, which was cool and then headed out to do the garden tour - impossible to find the trees without some guidance- pamphlet is not enough.

Popped in to stock up on wine & champagne for the festive season & had a lovely breakfast. Smoked salmon bagel and muffin with seriously good coffee. Such a relaxed atmosphere under the pergola & our fur child was also welcom. Great service & good.

We had a good experience. Casual environment and good for families with children. It was a very hot day and the tasting area was well cooled.
