Along with some friends we all enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Rusty Tractor. The salads were tasty and a good size. The chocolate tart was just delicious. The staff were attentive and our drinks and meals served in good time. Would return again.

Nice setting, friendly, efficient staff. Good coffee and options available for gluten free, although it would have been good to have one or two more savoury options.

Thanks for your great comments. We balance vegetarian & gluten free items with demand and with savoury items which only have a single day's shelf life, we would rather limit options than having to constantly throw out unsold items. Denis, Christine, Nick & Jen

Popped in for lunch today. Tried a bunch of stuff that I absolutely loved. My favorite had to be the sweet corn chicken chowder. Perfection! Can't say enough good things about the food I've had at The Rusty Tractor.
