White Row Farm Shop
There's lots to see and do for the whole family at White Row farm shop near Frome. Kids can let off steam in a playground complete with toy ride-on tractors and climbing frames. You may also catch a glimpse of the farm's pigs in their pens just opposite.
The whole site has a rustic feel and, as you would expect, there's a good sized farm shop full of locally produced goodies. We were pleasantly surprised to discover a fish and chip shop on site - one to return to at a future date! And there are other shops too for gifts, flowers and even a lovely vintage shop full of furniture and clothes. Don't do what we did! So taken with all the gifts and clothes, we forgot to call back in to the farm shop on the way out to buy our weekly vege!
The cafe... having run out of milk at home, we decided to hold on breakfast, saving ourselves for a big feast at White Row. It was 10.30am on a Saturday when we sat down to eat, so the restaurant was pretty full. As a family friendly place, it was bustling - so if you're out for a quiet meal this probably isn't the right spot for you. But we enjoyed the buzz and the staff were very friendly and attentive. They brought our flat white coffee straight away - thankfully as we'd missed our caffeine injection earlier.
We could have chosen from a large full breakfast, a smaller full breakfast and vegetarian option but we ordered scrambled eggs and salmon. After about 15 minutes a large helping arrived, piping hot and beautifully cooked but, even with an empty stomach, I couldn't eat it all as it was so filling. Another coffee (a latte this time) washed it all down. It was about £10 a head with the one coffee, so reasonable and good value for money based on the quality and portion size.
On the way out we spotted a good range of home baked cakes in the cafe, so this would be a lovely spot for an afternoon tea no doubt. We also saw some people with dogs in the outside seating area, so good to know we can return with the pooch.
