Loads of yummy vegan options, and lovely, helpful staff. I had the Mediterranean panini with vegan pesto, and strawberry smoothie. An absolute treat to sit outside in the sun on such a beautiful day!

Delicious cakes and scones here last week with nice tea and coffee. It is served in a tea pot with china cups and saucers. Friendly service and well worth a visit. A few tables also outside with a bowl of water for dogs.
