Sunnyside Up Farm & Coffee Shop - Lincolnshire



In the heart of the Lincolnshire Wolds (which is about a hop, skip and a jump away between Tealby and Market Rasen) sits Sunnyside Up Farm Shop & Coffee Shop which prioritises using local produce on the menu.
We've visited a few times, and it does seem to be one of those places that a bit of an undiscovered gem.

Lincolnshire conjures up images of pretty villages with rolling green hills and winding roads. In my dream, at the end of the road, there's always a good strong cup of tea, a slice of cake.

(The tea was delicious and the scones were lovely). 

The coffee shop offers a wide selection of delicious hot and cold drinks, freshly made cakes and homemade scones. Stokes of Lincoln Tea & Coffee. (I haven't tried yet but they stock Marimbas Milk, white and dark hot chocolate made with real chocolate flakes. 

Indoors or out you will enjoy beautiful views over the Lincolnshire countryside including the lovely Lincoln Red Cattle contentedly grazing.

The staff are friendly and the scones, cakes on the counter looked wonderful. Freshly made everyday! - definitely a reason to return. 

Also they have tables and children's play area outside in addition to the cafe.

I took a quick wander around the farm shop afterwards which consists of two adjoining rooms. One contains the fresh foodstuffs (including locally made bread, bakery items, dairy produce and Sunnyside Up very own-reared beef alongside other meat and poultry farmed in Lincolnshire and a well stocked shelving unit of wines, whiskies and other sprits.

(not to mention a huge selection of jams, chutneys and preserves).

You mustn't leave Lincolnshire without trying some 'yellowbelly'. No, you don't have to eat one of the locals, it's the nickname of Cotehill Yellow - see if you can spot to in the cheese counter!

They stock 30 cheese sourced from all over the UK and Europe especially they sell 2 CoteHill Cheeses, produced just up the road in Osgodby.


The bigger room contains a wide range of tasteful homeware.





Bread by Bike, what a brilliant idea! Delivers home baked bread to your door, by bicycle.

They are 3 types of bread, medium and large loaves of white, wholemeal and granary bread.

You will have to try Bread by Bike, it's absolutely delicious. 

Please go check out Andy's website/Facebook page.


They are a large selection of fruit & vegetables.

(You can buy your meat with confidence). 

At Sunnyside up they are proud to offer beef that has been with them from pasture to plate. This means they know exactly what does into each animal, caring it for it from the day it's born, maximing it's welfare and feeding and handling it to produce beef with the best flavour and texture.


Sunnyside Up is a fab place to relax and enjoy some country air, whether you pop by for a coffee or lunch, or choose some lovely produce to enjoy at home.
