Please don't think this is a negative review, as it isn't.. Visited today, in my lunch hour, to meet my grandparents for dinner.. The lady serving on was lovely and was absolutely rushed off her feet (and working really hard), but she was definitely up against it (need more front of house staff!.. 1 people wasn't enough with the number...

We had a small breakfast and a fat breakfast, and to be honest there wasn't much difference in the amount or variety of food except the fat breakfast was double the price! Which... More

Popped in today for a quick lunch! Great service and great, real homemade food! Menu is not huge but I think that helps with the food quality. Lovely clean "bistro " style setting, lovely food and lovely service 😊

Nice little cafe on the high street. Fast friendly service. Standard cafe fare with one or two more unusual choices, like the spinach and feta puff tarts which are lovely. Good for a light lunch.

The staff were very pleasant offering us menus as soon as we arrived and waited for us all to arrive before taking our order. I ordered the ploughman's salad along with a friend the other 4 all ordered the Italian chicken. We all... More

Cheese and Onion Pie was the best we had. Right proper and tasty too. Nice folks, straight forward menu as well as off the chalk board with interesting choices. As visitors we had the cheese and onion pie as we'd been through a few and weren't entirely certain what the rave was all about. Now we get it. Wonderful, wonderful,... More

A small cafe situated on a busy main road but car park handy. I'd heard about this cafe so thought would visit just finished with breakfasts so had to wait a while, but well worth it , good selection of fillings for jacket potatoes served with garnish followed by a slice of cake which melted in your mouth all for£10...

Been in numerous times with our dog but on this occasion we hadn't even sat down before an oldish lady who we've not seen before (not the owner) came out of the kitchen became very abrupt and rudely asked " Does she know about the dog, there's...
