A suirrel Nut to be missed

Pleasant and cheerful, comfortable seating with a range of lovely cakes and snacks. Adjoining is a small gift selection. Relatively easy parking at that end of town.

Lunch for 2 adults and 1 child £26.60 (1 soup and sandwich deal, 1 bacon and brie Panini, 1 smoked salmon bagel and 3 soft drinks). Quirky little shop/cafe. Welcoming wood burner and soft sofas were just what we needed on a cold February day. Service was fast and staff were friendly and efficient. The food was really nice and... More

I fuelled up here druing a cycle run, on soup&sarnie, with a nice coffee and a scone. Friendly staff, prompt servcie, the place was nice and clean, free newspapers to browse. The outside area looked nice and sunny, though a bit breezy for it on my visit. Details are important - the scone was warmed, the butter was at room... More

Friendly staff, very helpful with local knowledge. Lovely lunch, homemade pie and salad and ciabatta and salad. Not huge portions, but enough for a light lunch. Nice crafty things also.

This is my favourite 'retreat' of all places! I have been coming here for over three years, it is the first stop I go to when I arrive in from Washington DC. When I am in town (for several months at a time); I come in daily to relax, listen to music of a different era, warm myself by the... More

Called into the cafe on Christmas Eve for a quick coffee. Ended up having the coffee, a snack and buying a few gifts. A really comfortable cafe with a small but tasty looking menu. The pumpkin and coconut soup was exceptional. A real bustling atmosphere, efficient and friendly staff and quick service. great place for a pit stop. Also some... More

Great food. I go here almost every week for lunch and love it. The food is always fresh and varied. Their soups are class. The atmosphere created is great and you can buy some really nice 'art'. The owners go out of their way to make all feel welcome. Just what you all need when visiting such a wonderful place... More

Decided to treat myself to an afternoon tea here - on a cold miserable afternoon. (Cost £7.50 pp) Loved it - nice fresh sandwiches, small scones and lovely dainty cakes - all washed down with a tea or coffee. Portions are not the biggest - if you are really hungry go for something more filling like the soup or sandwiches,... More
