Whilst their website does say the cafe is only accessible by stairs the only option for any one unable to climb the stairs is to sit outside in a rather unattractive farmyard. The shop, also upstairs, is disappointing except for their own range of cheese,...More

Hi Clare, Thank you so much for your review. The humpback bridge is certainly just a wee bridge isn't it?! The feedback on the cheese sandwiches is great, thank you for that. Please do come and see us again and sample our cheese soup!
