Friendly hosts and good food, together with a beautiful courtyard full of flowers - what more could you want for a relaxing lunch or afternoon tea. Open late on Friday evenings in the summer, the cafe provides a perfect meeting place for a meal or a drink and an evening with friends. Draught beers and Irish cider available, together with good local French wines and beers. All food is home-cooked to order and the English sponge cakes are the best around!
