As my title suggests I really enjoyed my burger, burger bun lovely & not doughy at all, nicely cooked & more than enough skinny chips - couldn't finish them all off

Called here for first time to eat whilst on my bike today. Great atmosphere and staff. Food and coffee great. Maybe not the cheapest but worth the visit and good to chat with other people there.

Just had a breakfast at this well rated cafe. My friend and I had the egg Benedict's and the spinach had obviously not been washed as it was very gritty. Unforgivable and totally avoidable. The coffee was poor and the service was slow. Certainly doesn't deserve the trip advisor rating. Please wash your spinach or at least try it unwashed... More

Eaten here a number of times now, never disappointed. Today was no exception. If your stuck with the menu you can't go wrong with any of the pancake dishes and a mug of coffee! Weekends are good for seeing some cool bikes and their riders

Visited on recommendation of my friend and reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. Really friendly staff and a warm welcome. Tasty toasted muffin with Cumberland sausage, fried egg and mushrooms which was delicious and the best hot chocolate ever! I thoroughly suggest a visit to this cafe, you will not be disappointed. We will definitely return again.
