Nice and friendly,a little wait for our cakes&drinks and we were the only occupants, but very nice. Small cozy atmosphere. Two cokes,four children's drinks (one spilled) three chocolate cakes,one scone,cream& jam and one chocolate brownie £30.25p so very reasonable for the area.

The interior is on the small side but very well furnished with quirky and quaint seating, pictures etc. The owner was very busy but gave you time and served to... More

Delicious burgers - I was very impressed with the food and service. Coffee wasn't great, but the food alone deserves a 5 star rating. I want to go back for another burger.

All too often my wife and I are faced with a familiar dilemma, try somewhere new and risk being turned away because of our 3 year old chocolate Labrador or leave our beloved pooch at base camp to sulk whilst we are out having fun. I... More

Lovely atmosphere inside this little Deli with great food and customer service. Little details like iced glasses make all the difference. All six of us who went here thoroughly enjoyed it and would go back again.
