Their Lemon Drizzle and Coffee Walnut are... More

Had lunch here pretty small inside but good choices on offer. Staff could be a little friendlier but the food was lovely and well presented. It's just behind the main road so a little hard to find!

Home made food, cooked as you wait by a lovely lady and her two daughters. Nothing is too much trouble and the service is prompt and friendly. Breakfasts are first class as are the home made pies. Worth a call.
