I love going here. There is such a lovely atmosphere and ambiance to this place. So many interesting books. I have managed to find some real gems in the past. The restaurant is also great.

This is a gem! If you love books, home made soups, freshly baked cakes, excellent coffee and log fires - this has it all. The books are well priced, there is no rush to leave and it is so quirky. They even have a 50p...More

Perfect coffee and tea with amazing cakes and homemade soup. What's not to like? Great for a bank holiday bike ride
