By day it's great place for a coffee and snack to meet friends,if the weather is warm sit outside and watch the world go by. Upstairs has a good view over the Market Place but the stairs are very steep and could be a problem for some people. Friday ,Saturday they serve meals from a limited menu. Good value friendly....

Called for Sunday breakfast. Had to send back 2 cups as were dirty. Ordered breakfast baps. Fillings quite tasty, but bread rolls cheap and dry. How about warm baguettes?

Looking round we came to the Market Cross Restraunt and as it looked pretty and inviting, we went in. The welcome... More
