On a Sunday afternoon, this café was packed. We were however disappointed with food - both meals cold and the beef curry was more like a beef stew. We will therefore not return here in the future despite being offered complimentary drinks.

We heard about this cafe from the proprietor of our B & B Plas Gwyn. It is extremely cute in the centre of the village and has a lovely range of food. Atmosphere is great and staff really friendly. Would highly recommend this place.

Had a superb dinner here with friends in late December. Superb local lamb cooked to order. Quaint historic building with cosy atmosphere just off town square. Friendly staff and fast service. Great value for excellent freshly cooked food.
