Judges comments - September 2018
'I felt totally loved, wanted and a valued customer... and judging by the number of customers in there, in this hidden away spot, so did everyone else. This really is an award winning establishment... they tick every box in every way... they even welcome dogs in their conservatory!
I could see the chef and into part of the kitchen... both spotless, tidy and very professional... Smart efficient, helpful, well trained, friendly, knowledgeable staff who are very proud of their cafe and what they do.
Excellent food, a good varied menu which changes regularly, virtually all GF, many veggie and vegan, able to adapt for allergies. The food was delicious. I just wish I lived closer so I could go every week. The flavours were exquisite, well prepared, looked attractive, and the portion size just right. Even the cake I treated myself to for dessert (gf and vegan), was light, moist, tasty, was garnished with a fruit coulis and a physalis to decorate... And... excellent quality coffee with good quality soya milk – I loathe cheap soya milk.
This was top restaurant quality in a garden centre "cafe"...Lovely cakes. Good value for money. Very popular with a regular following. They were even getting some different beers and drinks in for one regular who is GF with other allergies.
This place really is a gem... 10 /10 (higher if I could give it).'
