Johnson’s Farm Shop
I visited Johnson’s Farm Shop today, which is situated in the lovely village of Oldhurst just off the A141 to the east of Huntingdon, and just before you arrive at Warboys, which is a nice village on the edge of the fens.
This lovely little complex was once and suppose still is a working work farm with a cafe, steak house and comprehensive farm shop, all the buildings have been restored to give a rural feel to this setting.
Once in the cafe/restaurant there was a sign to say order at the service counter, but then had to go find a table and go back to the counter to order. The girl who took my order was quite confused and over charged me for my breakfast, but the breakfast did come quite quickly shortly after that.
The menu was quite varied with the theme of history going on, not quite sure why, but there you go. The menu did have lots of options and plenty of different dishes to chose from.
On the Plate:
Nice …. this all looks very appetising and smells delightful .. can’t wait. The coffee and the toast arrived first, so was luke warm once the main event arrived. The bacon was well cooked and I had three rashers as I did ask not to have the black pudding and they replaced it with an extra rasher. The bacon was awesome it was thick cut and a beautiful flavour as was the two chipolata sausages (I would presume they were prepared in their own butchers) so if you liked them you could buy some in the shop. The mushrooms were very good not to slushy with a whole grilled tomato, and a fried egg, once again nice flavour. The breakfast came with a round of white toast, no options given, and one carton of butter.
They were available at a cost of £2.95 – I will need to go back and sample.
I decided to go for a large coffee, which didn’t seem to be that large, the coffee was ok with no refill, for £2.65 quite expensive.
The breakfast was £10.60, which seemed a little steep to me, although the breakfast was good, with both the quality and quantity
A good breakfast and most enjoyable with plenty of flavour in some rather pleasant surroundings, but I really do not like the sachets of sauce on the table, why not a good old bottle, so much easier and less mess. I would really like to go back and try the cheese scone.
