Lovely place to stop along the way for time out, some cheese tasting and a great milkshake. We enjoyed all their cheeses and had to bring some back home with us. Their milkshakes were "real" - and yum!

Stopped for a tea-break. The cheese cake was nice but it was too much for one person. Unfortunately, no one else is a cheese fanatic in my family, so I had to eat it all up (lol). Chocolate milkshake was not good. We find it...More

This was my first return visit since the change of ownership of what is now the " FARMGATE CAFE" . There appear to have been some changes to the decor not necessarily for the better, as the "quirkiness" of the Holy Cow is no longer...More
