The food slider



Whether you are looking for a salad, a sandwich or a full blown lunch with friends and family all our food is prepared to order in our kitchen by our team of chefs using seasonal, local ingredients.

Our breakfasts are rather special, and the menu covers a range of options including Full English, waffles,  granola and more; we open at 8:30 Monday to Saturday and 9:30 on a Sunday and serve breakfast until 11:30 every day.

But it's not just about the food.  Our trained barista’s serve up the perfect cappuccino or pot of tea alongside a huge selection of cakes.  For something a little stronger we offer a full bar menu including locally sourced beer and cider.


The Cabin is the perfect spot to grab food on the go.  Coffee, tea and other hot drinks are made to order along with sandwiches and cakes prepared in our Ivy House kitchens.

Overlooking our giant koi pond it’s a great place to enjoy an ice cream on a hot summers day or a hot chocolate if the weather is on the chilly side.

Please note The Cabin is not open every day.   If you find the cabin is closed on your visit, takeaways can be ordered from the main restaurant.
