This is a lovely little tearoom that also provides lovely home cooked meals , snacks and cakes at a very reasonable price. Went along with my daughters today and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Excellent!!

Not sure if we'll known, but Lucy also makes fantastic cakes to order. I recently order 2 Birthday Cakes for my husbands 50th Birthday Celebrations which were incredible. Both Chocolate Cakes were demolished as everyone loved them and at such a fantastic price!

Great value for money, tasty simple food. You can see how much hard work Lucy puts into the cafe, it's reflected in everything in there. The cakes are delicious, and all home made (I think!) we will return when we can :)

OMG this place is amazing.... So quaint. Nice little cafe but also a shop that sells odds and ends. Like a little treasure trove. Whilst waiting for breakfast I had a wander through the three little rooms and looked at canvas prints, handbags, cards, handmade...More
