Fantastic! Can't recommend enough.

We are so pleased to have found this little gem. The staff are amazing and the food is fantastic. They do delicious little specials that is often a topic of conversation when I phone my Dad who is a local (unlike us) and also loves it! Great value. Go go go!

Went here yesterday for lunch and was very impressed with both the service and the food. Quiche of the day was beautiful and obviously prepare with a skilled hand. Definitely worth a visit!

Brilliant food mostly cooked on the premises. Very tasty. Service can be a bit slow when busy but well worth the wait.

Stopped in for a little snack / light lunch and drink. Husband had a black Americano which tasted like filter coffee that had just been put in some hot water (he knew it wasn't right, he knows his coffees) Both ordered off the light lunch list. Mine being the omelette with cheese and mushroom, and you get coleslaw, side salad... More

Really like this place as it's roomy and a great place to meet up with other mums without feeling like you're taking over the space with pushchairs. The food is basic but decent, with veggie and vegan options which is great. They even have dairy free cake! Staff are always friendly and attentive. Love the old features and the stained... More

Really like this cafe and the fact it is supporting people with Autism.

I also really like the quirky pottery that is for sale also made by people... More
