Myself and friends frequently visit this cafe and we absolutely adore it. Although quite a small place, this humble cafe has a brilliant atmosphere- the owners are friendly and welcoming. The food is prepared promptly and offer good variety on the menu. AND they do the BEST scones around!

Of the sea of coffee houses & tea rooms this one stands out. Friendly staff who make you feel like one of the family. Good ' old fashioned' service. The scones are delicious & one of the few places you can get Marmite on toast. Loyalty card means you can get a free cuppa after 10 visits
