Two teas, a huge glass of fresh orange and 3 lovely cakes for £10... More

Not easy to find - owners you need a better signage ! - but lovely modern crab decor inside it was a lovely surprise. Staff were absolutely lovely but the food is what made it for us.... More

Went for lunch here after a walk, so we were quite hungry, and we weren't disappointed. The menu catered for all tastes, with main dishes, burgers from the grill, toasted ciabattas and light bites. The baked potato with tuna mayo was huge, with a nice dressed salad. Friends had the brie and cranberry ciabatta, which they said was delicious. We... More

My wife and I stopped at Mercat View for lunch. Walked up the stairs to find a bright welcoming place. We could chose where to sit and settled for a table near a window overlooking Main Street. A friendly waitress brought us the menus and explained the soup of the day. She took our orders as soon as we were... More
