Called in for a light lunch and child's meal. Filled jacket potato fine but child's sandwich dry, butter only in centre of the bread. Raisins clearly from a large pack designed for baking as they were very small and contained mixed dried peel! Don't waste your cash.

Called in today for coffee and cakes and asked for a gluten free cake. Very disappointed- particularly as gluten free sold in the store . Not really acceptable to go out of the cafe and buy what I wanted and take into the cafe

The restaurant is undergoing significant building work so is reduced in size. Despite arriving at 12 o'clock on a Thursday, they were unable to seat us (a party of 3) until 12.20. The menu is much reduced and I struggled to find anything to my taste, not usually a problem, and eventually settling for a dish called Farmhouse ..... (sorry, can't remember the full name) but served without the cheese. It was very nice, but essentially it was a bacon sandwich with a fried egg, so I thought the cost at almost £8 was very steep. A gluten-free friend was very impressed to find they had a separate menu for those with food allergies, but disappointed to find they had only one gluten free dessert listed, which wasn't to her taste, and when she asked what gluten-free cake was available, was offered a single option - apparently an order with their supplier was outstanding. My advice is to give this place a miss until the building work is completed; if you do decide to go, booking a table for lunch is essential, and don't expect a wide choice of food or to get good value for money.

I agree with other reviews about turning people away in the restaurant. When we peek around the door and see a sea of empty tables, it's pretty disappointing to be told we have to book.

I've never come across staff more disinterested in getting people through the door. It's become a bit of a joke in our family. It's not the Ivy!

To anyone that has been turned away -- let me tell you, those tables stay empty for ages. On the occasions when we've been graced with a table without booking, we see "booked" tables unused for at least an hour.

Perhaps they need to employ a system that busy pubs do, where tables are booked, but only from a certain time, so the tables can be used for a coffee/cake/etc beforehand.

BEWARE! Further building work is in progress. No toilet facilities within the building. Temporary facilities in the car park - hold your nose! Restaurant is offering a minimal range of meals. Coped with being pushed out of the way in the cafe queue by builders "in a hurry", for a "take out" only to be served a lukewarm coffee, despite request for a "hot" drink following previous experiences. Sadly, returned to my car to find electronic wing mirror totally smashed - £375 for replacement. Notcutts won't release CCTV footage to individuals but sent a £10.00 voucher as a "goodwill gesture". AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!!
