Quaint Little cafe

Stopped for a tea & cake (flapjack) nice friendly place that welcomes walkers, dogs etc. Nothing to posh in terms of decor but what we had went down well.

Visited one Sunday with a hangover, after a short walk and what a find! Excellent homemade spicy carrot and lentil soup with a toastie and salad on the side for less than a fiver and delicious. We will be back (hangover optional). 😋

Nice tea and cakes at a good price. Just the thing you need after a mornings walk. Nice welcoming staff (gave a young child extra milkshake for free)

A super cafe with lots of room inside and a small seating are at front overlooking the pretty river. Arrived too late for full menu so made do with tea and scones. All were well served with a delicious and well presented scone. staff were very friendly.
