Chocolate cake and coffee

Nipped in on the way back to the car, very glad we did as the cake was delicious! Service was good and facilities clean but the prices were a little steep. Will be trying out the full range of baked goods.

The place was clean. There was a good selection of lunch menu options. The food was fresh. Service was okay, but there was nothing stunning about it. Good, not great.

What a lovely place to stumble upon. A lovely ambience with very pleasant staff. The home-cooked food is scrummy, whether it is lunch, tea or 'just' a slice of cake...their cakes are fabulous!

Lovely place to eat-have been having lunch here on a regular basis for a very long time and the food is always tasty, well presented and good value. The staff are friendly and efficient. Would highly recommend this "little gem" of a place to eat to anyone.

I've never had cream tea before, but this was an excellent first experience! The scones were delightful, and there was a nice selection of teas. The clotted cream was amazing (as usual) and the jam was perfect. Pop in if you're nearby!!

The salads are fresh & deliciously prepared & you can add plenty of protein sources. The breads & pastries are unbelievably good! Only down side is they close late afternoon.

We went three times for lunch during the literature festival and it was perfect. Cosy seating, delightful staff and yummy food. The Honey Pot is ahead of the game in catering for dietary requirements as there is always one soup that is gluten free and dairy free and they are able to provide a vegan spread and gluten-free bread if...

We would definitely go here more but so many times we walk by and it's packed - and for good reason. The food is priced affordably and it's fresh and delicious. My favourite being the dhal. The cakes are lovely and the staff are friendly.
