It’s worth skipping off the M1 and up the A5 (you can slink back at junction 20) to find this authentic farm shop, marked out by a red-brick clock tower. Still a working farm, the Grindal family have converted a series of buildings to make space for a farm shop and café. Baskets display fresh produce as you enter. Eggs are collected on the farm; potatoes, asparagus, soft fruit, rhubarb and pumpkins are grown here too; the rest is sourced locally. Also on offer are cheese, jams, treats and Sercombes pork pies from nearby Rugby, and local craft beer, tasty gins and wines are found in the Beer Barn.
The Farmhouse Kitchen out back serves up excellent meals – omelettes, ploughman’s platters, baguettes, hot meals and oven-fresh cakes. Refuel in the beamed tea room or take advantage of the small garden outside. Visit the rare breed animals (quails, pigs, sheep and cows) in the large adjoining barn free of charge.
