I had a delicious mocha, which was perfect, for someone who isnt a big coffee lover, it hit the spot. I also had the carrot cake which was really good too! My auntie enjoyed her coffee. Great selection available. Friendly staff and very comfortable seat beside the window.

Went for lunch at the Willows and was not disappointed. Excellent home made soup and the bacon roll was a cracker. Pleasant surroundings and they even gave my dog a bowl of water. Friendly and efficient staff.
