Excellent, honest to goodness british grub is the benchmark here. The all-day breakfasts continue to excel and there is a range of daily specials and some delicious, home-baked cakes. They also take cards now and have recently upgraded the furniture.

Great fry-up when you need it the most. Friendly service. Milky coffee in mug, the greasy spoon way...without the grease!

This place is a really nice cafe to have breakfast. The food is reasonably priced and it tastes amazing. The lady taking orders and serving was welcoming and happy to accommodate the changes we wanted to the set breakfasts. There is a good vegetarian option which was well received by the vegetarian member of our party.

we had a fabulous breakfast (off menu) that they were happy to provide. They also gave us packed lunches over 2 days which were fresh and very lovely, Would happily recommend for fuel before a good walk up the hills. Good service and great staff.

Just the job for a satisfying breakfast, that will keep you going till you have your evening meal. Comfortable seating, quick service and a great mug of tea. The full English breakfast was very tasty, everything was well cooked and hot.
