Very nice food and cakes all made on the premises. The cakes and pastries are made from wholemeal flour ground at their own windmill

Visited Easter Sunday for drinks and cakes, mega busy and understandably a bit of a wait but the food and drinks were reasonably priced for that sort of thing and delicious. Recommend a visit. Will be back to sample other food on the menu.

The staff were very friendly and very helpful. It was nice to show my daughter around a traditional working windmill and from what she saw, she rather enjoyed it. I just think it's needs to come with a warning if you don't have a head...More
