My family and I visited after a year away from the cafe and thoroughly enjoyed a few hours sat outside in comfort, enjoying wonderfully cooked food, served by lovely staff. Would recommend to all my family friends to visit Spot in the Woods - despite the covid restrictions in place it did not deter from enjoying our Sunday lunch together.

Food was great as usual and they managed very well with the social distancing and outdoor seating. It chucked it down with rain but we were nice and dry (and warm) in the marquee!

Even through the heavy rain, the serving staff kept serving food and smiling using their trays to cover the plates of food and not themselves. Well done - it’s was very wet indeed !

We had a really lovely time at spot in the woods this weekend. The staff were lovely and very accommodating, the outside set up for covid was great (can't believe I've since learnt its set up on top of the pool!), the food delicious and the grounds beautiful. We met friends as its a midway point between our homes, and we'll definitely be coming back again. Thank you ☺

Had a fab breakfast here. Food was freshly cooked and delicious. Friendly service. We were sat in the outside dining area and although it was cold and wet outside we were warm and cozy under a heater. Would definitely recommend. Can’t wait to go back.
