Just had coffee which was very good. Lovely location. The food looked very tempting. Shame it doesn't open in the evenings.

This had been highly commended to us. Not a big range of choice, but enjoyed homemade bun and drinks. The outside deck and grounds were lovely. Friendly environment encouraged chatting to those at tables around us.
