Great for the kids…

We have a great selection of hot and cold kids’ meals for any time of the day, including a fun lunchbox full of goodies they’ll love! And when they’re finished, our fun area with toys, books and things for colouring-in will keep them occupied while you enjoy a breather. Your little artist’s masterpiece can even be displayed on the wall!

Try our famous Kingfisher Cream Tea

Treat yourself (and maybe someone else!) to our luxury afternoon tea - any time of the day! Enjoy scones with jam and clotted cream, doorstop sandwiches and a slice of cake elegantly arranged on a tiered stand, served with a pot of tea or coffee, for just £9.50 for one person or £18.50 for two. The perfect treat in a beautiful setting!

In a hurry? Not to worry!

Rushed out without breakfast? Just a short lunch break? No time to make tea? No problem! All of our delicious meals and snacks are available to take away! You can even call ahead and give us an order if you like - we'll have it ready for you to come and collect.

MACMILLAN CHARITY DAY ~ Wednesday 13th September

We're very excited to be holding another Macmillan Charity Day this year! We'll have lots of fun fund-raising events on, just like last year, to raise as much money as possible for Macmillan Cancer Support: a Raffle Prize Draw, a bake sale, Guess The Weight of The Cake, as well as games and a colouring competition for the children! We raised a whopping £398.50 last year, thanks to everyone's kind generosity. We had amazing prices donated by Boots, Clintons, WHSmith, Dominos, Morrisons, Frankie's Fun Factory, Golden Gecko Climbing, Flip Out and lots of other local businesses, and the prizes are rolling in now as we speak! If you would like to donate a prize to boost raffle ticket sales, we would be very happy to hear from you! Please email It's going to be a wonderful day, so bring your friends (and your money!) on Wednesday 13th September!
