I only wanted a desert so I am not commenting on the main courses. The home made treacle and bread and butter pudding with an enormous blob of clotted cream was an amazing almost life changing unrivalled gastronomic experience. I am a gastronort of modest fame and I challenge you all who read this to fault this astounding desert.

Part of a complex of small shops in the countryside near to the Leach Pottery. Smoked fish a speciality as are large portions of good puddings.

Returning from Devon to London, this was an absolute must visit. Cannot praise this place highly enough. Set in the grounds of Bowdens Farm, with other enterprises to visit, one cannot reccommend too highly the standard of both the produce and the welcome. Please do book in advance as the food is so exceptional that they supply such establishments as... More

Great food and always enjoy our annual visits here when in the area on holiday visiting family. Had the soup and smoked chicken which was excellent. Price has increased a lot since it opened and such a shame they changed the bread and butter pudding recipe. It is not quite as good as it once was. We even used to... More

My wife and I came here especially as we love 'home' smoked food. We both went for hot smoked salmon with roasted vegetables and new potatoes. The food was delicious and a good size portion and very reasonably priced. The menu was not extensive but there were several dishes we would have eaten. We could not manage dessert but I... More

This restaurant has a small but changing menu. They serve a variety of their own smoked produce with salad and new potatoes and a variety of puds to accompany. The food is always excellent quality and the staff are friendly and helpful. The shop also has a lovely range of products. Don't go here if you want something other than... More

We had lunch here on a scorching day in early June on the recommendation of the owner of our holiday cottage and were not disappointed. The staff were excellent and so helpful, due to the hot sun we couldn't leave our dog in the car, so they carried a table outside so he could join us in the fresh air.... More
