We serve homemade locally sourced food including cake, scones and light lunches. It is important that our food is as healthy as possible, so our cakes use natural ingredients and less sugar or alternatives to refined sugar.

We try to offer at least one gluten free and dairy free option each day.

We also offer alternative milks for our teas and coffees.

Keeping plastic waste as low as possible is important to us and by using our local farm shop for fruit and vegetables we are able to keep plastic packaging to a minimum.
