The Enchanted Places – Christopher Milne
“Subsequent trips included our weekly visit to Hartfield, a mile away along a main road, up a steep hill, down a steep hill and in at the first shop on the left hand side. Jessica (my donkey) needed no urging and the woman behind the counter no instructions. It was a pennyworth of bullseyes for each of us.”
We have a new menu for 2019. Full of some old favourites and some new tastes to enjoy. Our Dairy Ice Cream Milkshakes are sure to satisfy and we cater for all dietary requirements as much as possible with Gluten Free, Vegetarian and Vegan options available.
However this is just the start. As we progress through 2019 and complete our works to the new Pooh Corner kitchen area we’ll be introducing a larger menu with some amazing new dishes. So please stay tuned…
