Menu is limited, but food very good. Is not a cheap place, but not expensive either. They have a mini patio outside with heating on winter, which comes very handy when going for a walk with the dog. It says closed, but is open! i...More

Never been here when it was the Secret Garden but frequented many times after it became the Canteen. Usually for a coffee/hot choc, both of which was great, but also for food at times. Familiar food done interestingly. Happy to adapt for veggies, like me!...More

We took a stroll down to Canteen for lunch after reading the reviews on here. Away from the hustle and bustle but only a short 5 minute walk from the town centre, it was more than worth the very small amount of extra effort required!...More

Visited this hidden cafe a couple of times for brunch. Always warmly welcomed. Really lovely coffee, and tasty freshly prepared food. Inside area a little small, but there is also a covered heated seating area outside, which is nice. Service friendly and prices very reasonable.
