This is a lovely partly open air cafe and ideal after a morning exploring the gardens with an over excited cockapoo. Water for the dog was available and the drinks and cakes were very nice. They also seemed to have a good selection for lunch.

Our local cafe so we go quite often. On our last visit we had a watery hot chocolate and coffee - not pleasant. The cakes are always nice though. But the main meals can be hit and miss.

We enjoyed a decent coffee before visiting the gardens, this time inside the stables, though on a warmer day it is nice to sit outside.
