Jubilee Weekend Celebrations!

Why not come and join us over the Jubilee Weekend? As well as serving our main menu and specials we will also be holding a Jubilee BBQ in the garden on Sunday 3rd June.

Starting at mid-day the BBQ will be available through until 5pm at  £15 per head. The price includes two choices from the BBQ, salad and a mini cream tea.

So visit us over the long weekend and soak up the views whilst enjoying our own organic meat cooked to perfection on our BBQ. 

Fundraising for Breast Cancer Breakthrough

We are proud to be supporting Breast Cancer Breakthrough, they are an amazing charity who are dedicated to transforming and saving the lives of people affected by breast cancer.
Last week our girls in the cafe donated all their tips to the cause- kickstarting our fundraising with £75.
This week we are donating 50p from every main meal sold and 20p from every sandwich and cream tea to the charity so why not come for lunch? It's for a good cause!

Easter Time!

Rather predictably, after our long spell of glorious weather, the forecast had to change in time for Easter! Short, sharp showers kept everyone on the move - one minute sitting in a lovely warm sun and the next, diving for cover.This did nothing however, to dampen the spirits of our visitors who just kept arriving in their droves - thank you all for being such a lovely hardy bunch!

We put up easter decs and handed out chocolate easter eggs to excited children. Our baby twin goats also proved a star attraction!

Word is getting around. The Guardian used a picture of our cream tea as an example of the dish in an article about the fight between Devon and Cornwall cream teas. It seems Dorset do it better.....
