With spectacular views, large outdoor terrace, roaring log burner and comfy sofas aplenty, this fantastic if a little upmarket restaurant located in the village of Suckley, nearby to the hilly climb of Ankerdine makes for the perfect pitstop.

Inside the light and airy restaurant found beside their impressive showroom of furniture and home fittings you’ll find a great selection of breakfast (until 11:00), lunch (11:45 – 15:00) and afternoon tea (15:00 – 17:00) options and boasting spectacular views across Worcestershire from inside.

We must mention this isn’t the place to visit for a cheap pitstop (try Sally’s Place at British Camp), however the food has been great on our visits and all homemade and prepared on-site. Lunch choices vary from their Hereford beef, halloumi or vegan burgers, homemade Glasshouse savoury tarts, full ploughman’s, slow-cooked pork belly or soup of the day.

As for breakfast there’s the full English including sausages from just 2 miles down the road at Knightwick Butchers, eggs Royale, Benedict or Florentine, salmon & avocado and homemade granola.

If looking for something sweet or smaller there’s a superb range of homemade cakes on display at the counter, during out last visit these included chocolate fudge cake, coffee & walnut, apple & mincemeat crumble cake (superb), raspberry Victoria sponge, brownies and flapjacks.

Outside is a large dining terrace with lots of room to place your bikes and inside you’ll find plenty of seating too although do note that weekends get rather busy!

Local suppliers include Lamings Bakery and Peter Cooks Bread of Bromyard, Clive’s Fruit Farm of Upton-on-Severn, Gilly Pussman cakes of Malvern and coffee comes courtesy of James Gourmet Coffee in nearby Ross-on-Wye.
