Called in out of the blue. I had the sausage roll which was amazing. My fiancée got the vegetable soup which she said was lovely. The staff were very friendly and the coffee was great. I would definitely recommend.

I have been here a few times for lunch and brunch and the quality of the food is excellent!!! The service is good and the place is spotless! Having eaten in the other cafes in the area this is my favourite and is the most reasonably priced!! I also love the quirky tea pots!

Served by lovely, smiling girl, and we both had a coffee to follow. My only comment would be the stairs. I have no mobility issues, but the food is... More

Not only was it delicious, the portions were generous and great value! The coffee was great and the lemon slice I took away was also lovely. The service was excellent and the cafe has a lovely...

Have been here several times for morning coffee. Their scones are freshly baked with a great choice. Their berry and white chocolate are fantastic. Had their cream tea with choice of teas served in lovely cast iron teapots complete with choice of scone with fresh jam and cream worthy of a return visit and service with a smile
