Had a lovely Tea for two and cake sitting outside in the sunshine recently. The cafe is run by some lovely old local ladies and the food and tea they provide is excellent. Just the solution for a post wedding hangover from the night before.

There was a real buzz around the place when we visited, with locals chatting and a second hand book sale going on. The local information centre was very well stocked with leaflets and information and the ladies working there very helpful and friendly.

The Market House contains the Local Information Centre (I made the mistake of asking if it was the Tourist Information Centre) with a good selection of leaflets covering the local area and with knowlegable staff.

We saw a piece of theatre here in the evening. Ghost stories, with one about the round house. Very good location for intimate reading and very atmospheric. Loved the building and facilities. Great.
