We (2 adults, 2 seniors, 2 kids and a very spoiled cockerpoo) visited The Narrowbar cafe for a mid morning coffee and cake stop. The tea, latte and vanilla milkshake went down a treat.

Stopped en route to Wales on holiday with our 2 daughters and dog. Service was excellent and the full breakfasts were fantastic. As one of my daughters didn't want beans, extra bacon was offered in place. Beautiful coffee and dog friendly. Couldn't fault this cafe.
