Breathtaking views, good coffee

A delightful cafe opposite the Stone Store, sitting on the banks of the inlet. Lovely coffee and food. Beautiful building in historic setting and gardens.

We came for lunch. The setting is lovely. However the service was slow and the food was average nothing to rave about considering how much they charge.

Charming, olde world and full of character. The site is magical by the river with lots of special places to sit. Cider is great and food is first class.

We didn't order a meal but instead had coffee and a selection of a delicious slice and scone. The restaurant is in a nice setting, coffee was hot and the food delicious. Staff seemed a bit rushed and looked like they needed extra help to cope with the customers. Overall a nice place to relax for refreshments after visiting the... More

Went for lunch with our Mum as we had heard great things about this restaurant. When we arrived the waitress was entering items at the till and we waited for some time before we were served. We were shown to our table where there were uncleared plates on the table next door with food on the floor. Not a great... More

The menu offered a good choice of a variety of food. The restaurant need proper heating in the winter. The little open fire place is not enough.

Having been here a few years ago I was expecting great things. The service and location were great. However the good was disappointing. Our group of 12 had a set menu of three items which were pre-ordered that morning for lunch. None of them were up to scratch. I had "blackened chicken salad" which came out and was actually "Cajun...
