Called in for a bacon sandwich and a coffee. Coffee was lukewarm but not bad as coffee goes and the bacon sandwich was good quality. There is a farm shop and a small butchers inside this place. Looked like good access for disabled. Not bad all round really

Specifically left an afternoon in Newark on Trent to come here as we'd looked up it up on the website and it said it closed at 5pm on Sundays. Extremely disappointed that we got there to find it actually closed at 4pm on Sunday. Wasted trip for a company who's website is clearly out of date.

We stopped off here for coffee on route back home from the coast. It looks quite decent from the outside, then once you get in its as though you've just gone back in time about 40 years. There's a farm shop selling a whole manner of items, including food and drink items and also cards, gifts gets etc. The cafe... More

Lovely coffee and superb scones with just a hint of vanilla. The (in my opinion) perfect texture and taste for a scone. The other cakes were also very good.

This has to be the dirtiest, dingiest least appealing of any services I have ever visited. Poorly lit, filthy toilets and staff who really couldn't care less! Never again ! Ever!

We've been here a few times but most of the guys moan about the price of brekkie every time we visit. It does some nice home cooked breakfasts but the price is more than most cafes we visit when out on the bikes. Its OK but its nothing special, its just another café.

This time we called for lunch, two sandwiches fresh and tasty. Often it's a stop for coffee and cake, always just great.

This is a real find. Large spacious restaurant area, some bits and bobs for sale and plenty of space to park. Reasonably priced (2XP coffee, 2 x tea cake, 2XP coke plus beans on toast for£12) and really good food when it came.

Dreadful experience, I am a tour manager and I called in advance to book for 50 passengers and was told no problem. When we arrived the place was already full and the staff informed me that it would be a 40 minute wait before we could be served, I said we had booked but I was told that it didn't... More
