Surrounded by fragrant roses and cottage garden plants the Hockey`s Cafe Area offers a relaxing experience. Once a small 'museum' of farming implements from 'days gone by' the area has been restored without losing its appeal. Old flat irons, meat mincers and mole traps sit alongside horseshoes and paintings from local artists. Now completely enclosed, the Farmyard Cafe has kept its country feel whilst keeping out the chill!
Our fresh bean grinding coffee machine serves a range of coffees & hot chocolate. A pot of tea or perhaps a glass of chilled prosecco can all be enjoyed in the cafe area or outside in the sunshine. We are licensed to serve alcohol; you are very welcome to buy a beer, cider or a bottle of wine from our shop and borrow a glass to enjoy your purchases whilst at the farm. We have a delightful selection of 'nibbles & olives' too.

Create your own on-site picnic
We provide the plates, cutlery, napkins etc and you buy your picnic in our shop then settle comfortably in the cafe area or on the lawn and simply tuck in. We have a selection of fresh fruit/veg, salad, local bread, cakes, cheeses, pies, pates and sliced meats, along with local beers, a range of wines, soft drinks or new Forest Spring Water to complete your meal.
We're now serving hot breakfasts. Our home grown lop pork bacon roll is our new best seller:
Whilst our cafe harks back to 'days gone by' we have still provided you with fast, reliable and easy-to-use Wi-Fi and the best bit is - it is absolutely free!
