I brought my daughter and a friend in the half term and they had a fab time so thought I would book them in for the holidays again... However this time instead of a manageable group of around 6/8 like last time there was more than 20 children!!! The lady who I believe was the owner was extremely rude and... More

The session was indeed very busy due to an over booking but everyone enjoyed the event and it was only £7.50 which I'm sure you will agree is very good value for money. I ask you respectfully to please remove this review. I know you were disappointed and we never want that, but this does not make us terrible advertised... More

This cafe is simply heaven! I have visited numerous times and have never been disappointed. The staff are extremely welcoming and particularly friendly towards our children. The food is always superb, with the coffee and cakes the perfect finishing touches. We have participated in some of the cake decorating classes in the kitchen (next door) and they have been great...

To think that Her Majesty herself has visited this café and had a cup cake is recommendation itself! I've been several times now, the most recent visit on Thursday 7 August 2014 when it was moderately busy. The service was excellent, in fact I'd only just ordered and paid for our coffee, tea and cup cakes and sat down when... More

What a lovely cafe. You simply can't ask for more. This cafe is perfect in every aspect. Well prepared food, good coffee and excellent atmosphere. The staff are helpful and you feel welcome as soon as you enter the door. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

I visited this café with my partner in August of 2014, and I wish I had not. We ordered a cream tea, they told us they had no fruit scones but did have cheese scones so amazingly we were served cheese scones with cream and butter. The miss matched 'charity shop sourced' cups and saucers duly arrived with a tea... More

Hello Len I am sorry that your visit to our Cafe didn't meet with your satisfaction. Our staff work hard to make sure your experience is enjoyable, and would be horrified to think your were given a cup that wasn't perfectly clean. It seems to me you suggest that you were given a cup that hadn't even been cleaned at... More

Enormous toasted sandwich and a great gluten free Almond cake. A lovely little cafe right in the centre of the quirky old town.

This is a lovely little cafe. Cupcakes are to die for and the lunches are excellent too. We go there for a latte and lunch whenever we have time. Most recommended.
