Unfortunately, this place has closed down. A shame as the owners were really hospitable and they tried to do something different.

Fab breakfast cooked to order in an open plan kitchen in a no-frills shabby chic cafe, lovely coffee too. They also do lunches, tea & cake. Quick friendly service, not a greasy spoon!!
