We went here for a Saturday morning breakfast and although it was very busy the staff were helpful & accommodating. The food and drinks were excellent and we thought great value for the quality. A really nice experience.

Called in here for a late afternoon cup of tea after visiting the antique market. Friendly, helpful staff and so cosy relaxing chairs. Also plenty of outdoor seating in warmer weather.
