Enjoy the sunshine outside with great goat cheese, wine and kids feeding glass to goat. Check the weather before go there as seating is limited inside but you will not want to sit inside while sun is out there. No outside foods is allowed.

I expected a bit more to be honest. The cheese was a bit tasteless, the staff aren’t up to much, got dirty knives, the building itself has a cold vibe to it due to all the steel, not very farm like. Only had one toilet...More

Thank you for your visiting us and for your lovely review. Mr Entrepreneurial is doing quite well out of his little enterprise. He has just saved enough to buy himself some pet fish!
