Decided to stop by for breakfast en route back from the North. Breakfast service ended at 10:15 and the lunch menu was not overly inspiring particularly given they are at the heart of the farm produce market. No fresh juices on the menu for instance. Service was good and friendly although the buzzer on the table was clearly just for... More

The setting is lovely and the gardens beautiful. The windmill is located adjacent to Jasmyns farmers market which has the most amazing fresh produce and deli. People come from far and... More

This place is both a shopping experience and a collection of restaurants, it is beyond doubt the largest fresh/locally grown food establishment I have ever seen, it contains fresh vegetables/fruit, as well as meats, bread, sauces, cheeses, pastas and craft goods as well as a collection of restaurants that will easily meet your requirements. The food store is set in... More

Popped in here for pizza after our cable car ride. Shown to our table quickly (only one other table in) and drinks order taken. Ordered food and waited. And waited. After 55 mins the two pizzas eventually arrived by which time we had to ask for a take away box in order to make our next appointment. Pizza were decent... More

The food at this restaurant was delicious! The service was good, we did not have to wait long for our food to arrived. They make a lovely milkshake, I certainly can recommend that! Just be careful for the extras, like extra cheese and sauces when you order a burger and chips, it can make a big difference to your bill.
