With delicious local fare including Rother Valley Organic Meat, smoked fish from Weald Smokery and wonderful cakes from Farmhouse Cookery and Country Cakes, Jersey cream and ice-cream from Meadow Cottage Farm, there is plenty to enjoy before our PYO season and Asparagus season starts!

We are open Monday to Saturday 9 am till 5pm and Sundays from 9am to 1pm and from Sunday 3rd April we are open 9-5:3o every day!
