Popped in here for a late light lunch on Thursday. Everything was homemade, wherever possible locally sourced and excellent quality. The soup was delicious - locally sourced cauliflower and stilton. The hand carved ham succulent and full of flavour. The home made bread rolls top drawer. A generous pot of tea accompanied it all with a tea cosy to boot!... More

We stopped on the off chance of lunch and we were in luck! This place is small but brilliant, lots of personal touches, very friendly owners who are happy to assist and help. The cafe is lovely and the deli is brilliant! We would highly recommend it!! We'll definitely be going back.
