We are delighted to welcome you to our little licenced cafe.
We have a wonderful covered external seating area for those rainy or chilly days - it is the north after all!
Indoor seating is available and we now have a beautiful new coffee bar in our little shop. This was made by Jonathan using recycled material from around the farm. It's a lovely spot to enjoy your coffee sitting on a tractor stool looking across the fields.
All our sausage, bacon and burgers are from our rare breed pigs raised here at Pond Farm and fed with the whey from the cheese making. You can visit the pigs by following the track up round to the back of the café.
You can see the dairy where the cheese is made through our viewing window – on the right just before the pigs!
Our menu can change as the seasons change but below is an idea of the kind of cafe we are. We aim to use our produce, local produce or artisan produce of the highest standard, supporting local wherever possible.
