The Hollies Coffee Shop in Little Budworth: Is the price right?

On our way to a lovely weekend at both Fishmore Hall and The Elms, we stopped off for lunch in Little Budworth in Cheshire. The Hollies Coffee Shop provided a sensible stop-off in our journey. We had no idea what to expect but wanted something a bit nicer than your standard service station stop-off.

On this expectation, The Hollies succeeded; the food and drink was certainly nice, but what was disappointing was that, despite being a farm shop, the quality of food didn’t match the price we were charged. With lunch for the three of us coming in at over £25, and closer to £30, for a couple of coffees and light lunches, this felt like an extravagance we hadn’t quite prepared for, especially when you consider that our lunch comprised of a kids’ meal of sausage and peas, a sausage sandwich, and a beef sarnie.

None of these were particularly unique choices, and although nice, the sausage sandwich in no way justified being nearly £7, and the steak sandwich was almost a tenner. Bear in mind that the sandwiches didn’t even come with chips!

The atmosphere at The Hollies is really nice and the location is pleasant enough, but be prepared for your holiday funds to be diminished before your trip has started if you do use this as a stop-off.

Where it is: The Hollies Coffee Shop, Tarporley Road, Little Budworth, Cheshire West and Chester, CW6 9ES
