We stopped here part way through our garden tours and really enjoyed it. The food was yummy and very well presented. I had the dairy-free corn fritters and they were excellent (it was great to have a dairy-free option). My partner loved the beetroot salad....More

Parking gets a tick, food and the staff welcome: ditto. An interesting place for families as it is right next to what appears to be an excellent attraction. (Historic Village) The decor, with its many Pears, extends the punning on Shakespeare (oh dear) and one...More

Cute cafe on the road side surrounded by historical buildings from an historical village. Enjoy awesome rustic food with awesome coffee and brilliant genuine kiwi hospitality. I loved it and really enjoyed watching the traffic roll by and miss out on this little gem.

No criticism of food quality. Poor and slow service and food preparation. Coffee served first instead of last as asked. Food barely warm let alone heated as it should be.
