Lovely lunch with family and friends. The food was original and yummy. Everything fresh and homemade. Not cheap but very good. The main courses were just under £10 but considering the quality and quantity of food it's good value for money. Relaxed informal atmosphere. Now I am shocked by the negative review! My son has autism and he had specific... More

We visited today after watching pants at the Acorn. My six year old boy was excited and banged his legs a few times on the chair. Straight away a lady came over and told him to stop making a noise as it was going straight through her. She was rude and abrupt and non apologetic!!! If I wasn't meeting a... More

I met here with a friend. A cafe with a rustic style, and pleasant staff. I really enjoyed the coffee, they had a good range of food, including some lovely looking cakes and cookies. The food isn't the cheapest, but it's good quality. I would go again.

Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for: good choice and quality 'home cooked' food and drinks with a nice sitting area, and a very welcome range of children's toys too.

Lovely little cafe serving amazing food. Really good vegetarian selection and gluten free options available. Does nor serve alcohol, but has some great juices. Very popular so booking is advisable.

Asked a local and was told this place the best. It was clean with a good selection of food and cakes. Coffee was good and chose a piece of cake each..but I think for the price the size was small. Went to the loo and you walk through kitchen to get to it, both kitchen and loo were very clean

My friend I had a lovely time there yesterday. I had a deliciously spiced dahl soup with GF bread. GF choc espresso cake to take away for later on in the day. Lovely menu, service and comfortable surroundings!
