The café is an adjunct to a nursery. It is set in the middle of what, according to Pevsner, is Hertfordshire’s most splendid village. When I visited, it was free of piped music and I suspect that it always is. It has plenty of indoor as well as outdoor seating under a grove surrounding a splendid Atlantic cedar. The gardens are fairly extensive and worth taking some time over. They include a wide, sloping avenue of pretty hornbeams; very much, along with the oak, the local tree.
Although I only had tea and polenta cake, they serve both breakfast and lunch-time meals and soups. The smell from the kitchen was not at all generic café, but good food!
Mérite un detour!
