Consistently high quality hot and cold food from traditional English to Med fare. Great range of salads and home baked cakes. Quick and friendly service

Having read good reviews of this place, was quite disappointed. I had a takeaway sandwich, brown sliced bread. The bread was sliced too thickly and was stale.

Hi Sue Sorry to hear your disappointment. However, I hope the filling was tasty and the service and ambiance was welcoming and cheerful. Its taken along time, dedication and hard work to achieve my standards and I'm proud of them. Your bread for your sandwich would have been from a fresh loaf, ready slice by me for the purpose of...

Sorry to hear this, I'm confused too. I haven't made soup for a few weeks. But last week I made fresh root veg and cumin on Friday and Saturday. Which day did you visit and at what time? I'm not always there and it may be it hadn't reach a hot enough temperature in the Bain Marie (however still safe... More

On a cold wet miserable day in November my spirits were lifted by a warm atmosphere, great coffee and a delicious home made Flapjack !! Heavenly.

We visit regularly and have tried the sandwiches, soup and hot food - all made fresh whilst you wait. Great place to escape to and relax with a great coffee. It is fast becoming a popular meeting place and the carrot cake is 'award winning' in my opinion.

Hi I am very sorry you were I'll that day. HOWEVER it is very unlikely it would have been form anything consumed from The Greedy Pig as suggested. Some hot food, WHICH IS FRESHLY COOKED EVERY MORNING, is left to cool down SAFELY. So when it is very busy there is a second batch to reheat SAFELY. It's is often... More

Thank you. It's good to hear when someone notices and appreciate the fresh quality of our simple menu. We are priced for take-away, but the facilities of seating inside and out are there for those who want to stay longer at no extra cost. (or just stay and chat as many people do) love it!!!! More
