An award winning family-run farm shop and restaurant on the edge of the Blackmore Vale

We offer great tasting food at affordable prices both in our farm shop and our new, larger restaurant, bar and coffee shop.

Within our spacious shop we have a butchery counter, deli and fishmongers, alongside fruit and veg, household items and frozen foods. We also offer a range of beautiful art, gifts, homewares and hampers from local suppliers and makers. You can purchase in-store or online, and we offer local van delivery, or national courier service.

Join us for our legendary cooked breakfast, or our delicious local afternoon teas and enjoy the views across the Dorset countryside. You might even spy our own sheep and cows feasting on the grass nearby. A children’s play area allows you to enjoy your meal or hot drink outside whilst your kids play. On Friday and Saturday evenings you can eat in or takeaway at our ‘Udder Nights’ with offerings of fish and chips, burgers, curries, pizzas and more.

Open 7 days a week we are easy to find on the A30 near East Stour, and we have free parking and wifi on site.


We started offering online shopping in 2020 due to Covid. Due to the success of this we will be improving and increasing our offering, delivering by van to local customers, and courier further afield.


Our new restaurant opened at the end of 2020, and we are now fully operating, following government guidelines. Please do come in for breakfast, lunch or an afternoon tea.


The Down family have farmed in this area since 1938, opening the shop in 2005 to offer and champion tasty food from local suppliers and their own farm both in the shop, and in the restaurant.
