We have ample outdoor seating around our giant koi pond and plenty of indoor seating too.  Our separate conservatory area can be reserved for special occasions and seats over 60 guests, perfect for accommodating coach groups if booked in advance.

Dogs are welcome in the conservatory area or outdoors on the terrace or patio.

THE FOOD

Whether you are looking for a salad, a sandwich or a full-on Sunday roast 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.

TAKEAWAY

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.
