We had a short visit to the castle and stopped in the shop for refreshments. Service was friendly and attentive, drinks nice and priced appropriately. There was a good selection of cakes and ice creams on offer too.

Often stop here for coffee or ice cream when we visit the castle. Always a good experience. It is clean, the ice cream is lovely and creamy with lots of unusual choices and staff always friendly.

Brilliant lunch. Standard selection of sandwiches, paninis, soup etc. Ice cream and waffles were a very delicious addition. Would highly recommend

Pretty ordinary lattes, but hot chocolate is impressive. Great outdoor seating/play area if weather is nice. Found it quite expensive though
