Visionary chef Alla Wolf-Tasker (Lake House) is responsible for the transformation of this once derelict gardener’s cottage into a cosy cafe enveloped by verdant botanic gardens. Featuring a log fire, armchairs, a communal dining table and piles of pantry provisions, it’s the ultimate country eat-retreat. There’s even a patio with cane chairs and chandeliers. Blackboard specials might include crisp beer-battered flathead tails and excellent fries, or chubby meatballs with zesty tomato ragu and velvety mash. Picnic packs and kids’ lunchboxes make rambling possible.
