Never fails to delight

This is one of my regular places to visit for brunch, lunch or tea and it never fails to deliver despite expanding and getting busier. They have a great orchard to walk the dog and you can take your dog in if its good. Staff are amazing and the best coffee around.

Tasty, fresh, local food

We stopped for lunch. I had a sage and onion scotch egg and salad, my son had a warm, freshly made sausage roll also with salad. Delicious. We both finished our plates. A good pot of tea and all at a reasonable price. A lovely deli to look round and buy presents to take home

Great little deli and the home of the great scotch egg company

 A big must visit if you’re anywhere near here good home cooked food and if your a fan of scotch eggs then a must as they have so many different types also the added bonus of a brilliant garden plant centre. Plenty of seating inside and out but can be busy at peak times highly recommended and a very friendly place

Great place to visit

 Took mum and dad out for a drive and ended up at the Nest and I’m really glad we went. It’s a garden center but different. The staff are friendly and polite, more than willing to give advice and expertise. The restaurant is well worth a visit, the food is all freshly prepared and their range of scotch eggs is amazing. And they don’t rip you off. Dogs are allowed which is brilliant, even in the restaurant, there are lots of tables both inside and out. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to The Nest and will definitely be going back again.
