We called in for coffee and cake on a quiet raining weekday. It doesn't look great from the outside but with trust in TA we gave is a go and it's a good find.
A nice looking menu and plenty of seating available. The cakes we had were very good and l did overhear other people praising their food.
I appreciate this is my own opinion from a one time visit. I didn't find the service all that warm and welcoming and with only a few other customers there wasn't much atmosphere to fill the hall. I thought the menu was expensive but I have no reason to doubt the quality. This may be the angle the owners are going with which I can appreciate.
This is subjective criticism but based on a few cafes we've visited on holiday I found it lacking in the overall experience.
Ultimately I would return if in the area (I'm not sure there's much alternative) and would recommend it to others.
