The Coffee Shop

The coffee shop is housed in a beautiful wooden building with living sedum roof and solar power. A cosy log burning stove waits to warm you on cold winter's days.  Patio doors open out on to the decking, where tables overlook the children's play field. Indoors story books provide entertainment for the children and newspapers and magazines await the adults. Make sure you stop in to see our hens, ducks and piglets before you go! Why not meet a friend to walk the dogs? 

Here's a link to an example of our menu

A sample of our menu includes:

  • Eggs Benedict
  • Homemade Soups of the day.
  • House Special Salad
  • Eggs & Mushrooms on toast
  • Bacon Buns
  • Sunday Specials
  • Hot Saddleback Sausage Buns
  • English breakfast,  made with delicious ingredients from our butchery!
  • Sticky toffee pudding, chocolate brownies, millionaire shortbread, scones, muffins and many more fantastic treats that will tempt you back for more. 

Please note that we do not permit food other than purchased on site to be consumed inside or outside the coffee shop, on the playfield or in the Forest. We welcome picnics and have a picnic field next to the grassy car park area - bring picnic rugs/groundsheet/picnic chairs/windcreeens/sunshades/tents/thermoses/BBQs for a real traditional picnic. This area is NOT next to the Cafe but it is very handy for the car park which saves carrying heavy bags. Please enjoy a picnic in the Broom House Farm Picnic Field and then head to the Coffee Shop coffee and cake!  We do not have a wet weather picnic area...but there's always your car!

Friendly dogs are welcome outside, but must be kept on a lead at all times. They may be allowed inside at our discretion - please ask on arrival 

we are able to take card payments (minimum spend £5)
