Much better service this time round. They were very busy, fortunately we booked. Group of 8 ladies went for Tea. Tea & cake arrived simultaneously. Cheese cakes are awesome! There is a play area for children and a short walk into the forest.

Amazing cheese cakes on offer at Waterberry. If you prefer savoury/ breakfast or lunch menu there is lots to choose from. Nice walk offered in the small forest below the premises.
