Called in for a quick snack. Minestrone soup was heavy with vegetables and the crusty bread was fresh and crusty. We were surprised at the size of the cafe, only 12/13 places but only a few taken mid afternoon. Did not have time for sampling the other items on the menu. Maybe come again when in the area.

Love this place, the staff are so friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Lovely home made soup and baking. Great place to sit with a nice coffee and cake and admire the Abbey.

Then to make matters worse the chair was so hard that I had to take off my jacket... More

We called in to this café one lunchtime last week for a well needed refreshment. Really good sandwiches were freshly made together with delicious apple cake and freshly made tea. What more could you ask for on a hot day. The staff were very friendly and if you are up in that part of the country do call in.

Welcoming, good food, though simple and short menu. Excellent service, spotlessly clean, home-made cakes, biscuits etc. Thank you to Sue Ryder staff for directing us this way!

Friendly service, excellent coffee and some lovely-looking cakes (I resisted), including one with rhubarb jam and rose icing, which looked spectacular. Slightly cramped inside, but pretty views to the abbey.
