Not dressed up but simply served in good fresh brown bread, as it should be to let the crab shine through - delicious and very good value. The cakes looked moreish too. Very good '60s music to accompany our lunch too - well done!

Alway's go here for a crab sandwich when in season. Worth the wait as there is sometimes a queue.Plenty of variety on menu & delicious cakes.

Food was fantastic in a cosy tearoom. Staff very cheery and helpful and all had smiles. Definitely would come again . Had a ham and cheese panini . The plate was a work of art. Well worth the money .
