Lovely lunch – Sarah
This is our fourth visit as we buy our chicken feed from Thorne's. The food is always delicious and this visit has been no exception. I had one of the specials - cheese savoury toasty (cheese, onion, celery, pepper and carrot with mayo) and I'm going to have to try making it at home as it was such a good combination. We followed lunch up with some of their cakes and scones and a pot of tea. Perfect!
