A little gem

Walk to the top of Castle Street and you will find this charming little cafe. It's a bit like a rabbit warren, with little nooks and crannies. The staff are charming and the food freshly made and delightful. There is also a display of local art that can be purchased

This place is a little gem! Linda and Rose are so friendly to everyone that goes in. There is always service with a smile. The range of snack is super. It's a lovely cosy and contemporary place to catch up with friends.

How silly not to have walked a little further along the road and found the Art Cafe before. The staff are lovely, friendly and polite. The food is tasty and all prepared freshly for you. The place is spotlessly clean and a lovely atmosphere especially if you enjoy art.

Such a wonderful staff and good food. I regularly go to this cafe to meet a friend and we would not think of going anywhere else. Always a good specials board.

A lovely friendly cafe with great service and good quality food in very interesting and pleasant surroundings. I love that I can take my dog in here and she is made to feel welcome too with her own bowl of water (and maybe a biscuit or two). Nothing is too much trouble for the very helpful staff staff. Although I... More

Slightly out of the way and upstairs, but well worth seeking out if you want decent coffee or tea, snacks that don't cost the earth and a relaxed atmosphere in which to temporarily take the weight off your feet.

I met up with some friends after Christmas. They usually go but I had never been. I was unimpressed. I had a coffee and quite frankly if I had collected some mud from the garden and added warm water it would have been better. The surroundings look cheep and it was not very comfortable. There was very little choice of... More

Having only recently read this review I am a little surprised by the comments. Our coffee is Lavazza Super Crema, one of the very best in alot of our customer's opinions, so to read your description of mud and water seems a little shocking. We have various areas in our cafe where you can sit either on sofas, or chairs... More

met up with friends here for coffee and cake and really impressed. It is upstairs and so difficult for anyone who can't climb steps but so impressed with the cleanliness and décor. It is deceptively spacious with 4 different rooms including the 'oak room' which is completely oak panelled (building is 300 years old) and offers comfy sofas for 6-8... More

If you want a cup of coffee and a slice of fantastic cake in a relaxing atmosphere this is the place to go. There are also super sandwiches and light lunches all in a ever changing art gallery. It is upstairs so not suitable for everyone but the friendly staff will make it worth the effort. Don't forget the art... More

Both a good place for a light lunch or tea/coffee and a slice of homemade cake. Relaxed, arty surrounding. Cake was scrumptious.
