We had a lovely first visit to the tearooms, freshly-made tuna & salad baguettes and a bowl of piping hot chips to share. Couldn't fault it, great value and the lady who runs the place was friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back. Thank you.

Went on an offer for breakfast. The amount of food was very generous and excellent value. To ends to be at the lower end of the market for ambience, and not the place for a first date. However as said, good value and well cooked food.

Went here after buying a groupon voucher . Had two small breakfasts toast and a drink. The breakfast was far from small and cooked just how I like it. Would definitely recommend to anyone. The menu prices are very reasonable and we will defiantly be coming back.

Great cafe, use it a fair bit now after a friend in town pointed me toward it. You cannot get a better breakfast for your buck. If this woman added a quid to each meal it would still be value for money. Nice thick bacon, fresh egg, you really can taste the difference here. Usually have a full english, but... More

There was one lovely lady serving and cooking etc, So you may have... More
