My fiance and I were pleasantly surprised by the good quality of our lunch. I had a delicious salad and a scrummy chocolate and blackberry tart. The coffee was pretty good too. We can wholeheartedly recommend the attractive Terrace restaurant set in the beautiful grounds...More

I tasted the best sausage rolls in the world in this cafe! Cumberland sausage with black pudding (but they change almost daily!) and honeycomb tiffin to die for. All in evoctive surroundings with the horse troughs still in situ!
