Went for coffee, fell in love with the art on display. We were able to sit outside in the charming yard. The cakes looked really good, but we were too full to try them. A good excuse to go back again another day.

Went along to take a look at the gallery. Lots of lovely crafted pieces. Some were extremely expensive, out of the reach of most pockets, but beautiful. Food choice was good whether it just be cake and coffee, snack or meal.More

No-one has ever accused Sladers Yard Cafe of having small portions before! In fact many people ask for bags to take food home because the portions are so generous. All the food is made from scratch using carefully sourced ingredients and the prices are considerably...More
