Decided to drive back to Harrington from Forster via Wingham and discovered this gem. Great coffee, gluten free selection of cakes and genuinely friendly service.

Food was good pity about the service. We waited 35 minutes before someone realised we had not been served, to make matters worse the staff at Bent blamed a trainee for not placing the order correctly . What a joke the responsibility for an apology...More
