They didn't have steak pie so I opted for Fish and Chips. Fish was OK but the batter was undercooked as were the 7 large handcut chips, hiding under the fish. Service was OK, but I wish I had gone to the chippie next door.

Popped in on a recommendation from a local and was not disappointed! Had 2 large coffees, a lemon tart and slice of rhubarb pie for £12. Good selection of homemade cakes and freshly cooked breakfasts being served around us looked lovely and all well priced....More

Myself and family popped in for some breakfast. The photo actually doesn’t do it justice. The food was delish! Sausages were probably the nicest I have tried. My son had pancakes with bacon and demolished the lot. Nice surroundings too and staff were lovey. Added...More

Called in for an early breakfast. Was delighted to see it’s open from 8.30am. Friendly and helpful staff. We had a slice and potato scone roll and a bacon roll and both were delicious. Couldn’t fault it. Thinking of making this a regular haunt.
