try the bakewell tart!

really lovely cakes and coffees but not enough seating!! We picked a very busy day to visit but I reckon that this little gem is always busy as it seemed to be full of regular visitors. we just had cakes and coffee but the savoury dishes looked amazing too!

Called in for lunch a few weeks back. We had a variety of dishes Thai Red Curry, Pastas, Fish and Sandwiches. Food was really lovely and the setting is very nice indeed. Ther service (while very friendly) was pretty poor though. Waiting time of almost 30 minutes is quite long and then table clearence and coffees etc took an age... More

Food was cooked to a 5 star standard!! We visit regularly, but noticed recently that the food and menu had changed (all for the better). Living in the area it's really convenient to have such great food so close, but we would gladly travel miles to eat food this good!! Top class.., can't say enough. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

After a disappointing experience here with family a few weeks ago we decided to give it one more go and were we glad we did! I had the Dover sole for main course it was simply amazing, seasoned and cooked to perfection, with the extra added bonus of it's price @ €20 which for those that know Dover sole it... More

Food was tasty but over priced for what we got. Good service and the little goats outside were cute!

I have been craning my neck while driving past this spot on the way to my visits to Fota for a few months. I finally decided to stop for a quick dinner on the way to an evening talk at Fota Wildlife. I ordered the pork loin and my husband had a burger. Wait time was a bit of a... More

The staff were nice. The place itself is clean and there's a good buzz. Unfortunately their lunch menu let them down. The portions were small and mean, in a bid to make you order dessert probably. The better part was the coffee which was nice. A few items didn't have the price quoted beside them which I guess is a... More
