This place is small and very friendly, and the food is quite special. Beautifully presented and very tasty. It's very clean too. Hard to see how anyone could be disappointed.

Came here for for the first time today, we had breakfast sandwiches, both the sausage and bacon versions were very good indeed with nice quality produce, coffee was hot and the tea was served in a quaint teapot. Would certainly come again, reasonably priced at £12 for 3 sandwiches a coffee a tea and some water.

Great place to visit for a light lunch or tea/coffee with fantastic homemade cakes. A little on the pricey side but in the end you get what you pay for.

The staff that served us were all that you could want; polite, funny and friendly. Some of the prices, at first glance, looked a bit steep however as... More

I have visited this cafe many times now and I have to say my favourite option (and what I consider to be the best value) is the high tea for two- it... More

We found this cafe a couple of years ago when another close by was too busy and we are so glad we did. Lovely smallish place, very friendly staff. All the food is made to order but the wait is never longer than you would want. Tea is served in a pretty flowery teapot with a little shortbread biscuit on... More
