This place is both a farm shop and a cafe/restaurant. The farm shop carries a lot of delicatessen-style pre-packed food stuffs, but also sells fresh fruit, veg, meat, pies/cooked meats and cheeses. Also, a good range of well-priced wines. The restaurant serves a decent range of light and larger dishes. I had the trout with wild garlic linguine - rare... More

After a damp visit to Holt we called in for a cake and coffee. I am gluten free so the waitress offered to fetch a scone from the deli next door. It came with cream and a fruit compote, it was glorious but could easily have served 2 people. Staff friendly and helpful.

Came in on a busy Saturday morning. We didn't book but the staff was friendly and helpful and found us a lovely table by the door. Staff were soon over to get a order and told us about the locally source meat which is also available in the butchery which we went home with some amazing bacon and super sausages.... More

One of the most beautiful places in the area serving excellent fresh, locally sourced breakfast. The kids loved their water out of old fashioned milk bottles. The food and coffee were suberb!

Great location for getting fresh food and store cupboard items when staying in the area. Lots of the food is from the local area too. I was impressed with the range of gluten free foods they offered (better than many supermarket chains). Really easy to find and park and they have a lovely bistro cafe with lots of yummy food...

We had the full english breakfast here and were very pleased and impressed. The quality of the food is superb, with the bacon, sausages and black pudding being particularly tasty. The coffee is delicious, and the service was great. The place itself is very light and airy, and the deli (whilst being quite expensive) has some really good produce. The... More

Description
The restaurant You can eat under the ceiling of the massive eighteenth-century oak barn or, if it's warm, amongst the flowers in our garden, a place of serenity and calm that's good for the soul. The Butchery All of the Angus-sired beef, lamb, chicken, geese and turkeys on the butcher's counter have been raised organically at our farm. The rare breed, outdoor reared pork is sourced locally. The Deli You will find many of the best British artisan cheeses, organic salami and a choice of food from our kitchen. The Shop We have a zest for sourcing producers who reflect our own ideals, for whom quality and provenance count. The wine is selected in conjunction with Fields, Morris and Verdin, the wholesale distributors for Berry Bros and Rudd.
