“Cheap, cheerful and cosy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Just a tiny little space tucked away off the main market square in Ringwood, this cosy cafe offers a quiet haven and good value.Reminiscent of Miss Marple in terms of clientele out of season, it becomes very popular with walkers and cyclists in warmer weather as it is a stone's throw from the river Avon and the many footpaths and cycleways that run along or close to the disused railwayline. Breakfast is excellent and there is always homemade soup available, but the service is obliging and basically, they will cook whatever you ask for - within reason! Most people drop in for coffee and Tansy's excellent cakes.

“Great for Gluten Free!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

Visited for the second time today. Had a lovely Gluten Free toasted sandwich and fruit cake. They make their own GF bread and cakes...heaven for Coeliacs!
