Had a lovely breakfast at Aunty Val's, big breakfast for the hubby and the smaller version for myself. A small little place with outside eating available. Waited about 20 minutes for food to arrive, that makes me feel better knowing it's being cooked to order. Staff were very friendly and constantly on the go.

We went in here this morning for a mid morning pit stop. We had crumpets and coffees and it was all delicious. Really nice place, attentive friendly staff and our springer spaniel puppy was also very welcome. Lovely little find, though it's name is now aunty's team room, don't miss it!
