Lovely quiet 1940s style cafe - like walking into your nans 'best' room. Staff are lovely, food is great and reasonable priced and you get to listen to the fab pianist if he is around. A large selection of teas too! ☕

The memories are of war time England. The furniture and china are reminiscent of my childhood. This cafe is run by SERVE and the food and drink was very reasonably priced
