A great place for lunch and snacks. The only problem is that there is often a coach party in, it may be a bit busy, but it shows how lovely it is. Home-made food galore for all tastes. I think it closes at 5pm.

Can you order a sweater that I saw in your gift shop in August? Should have bought it then but didn't . Didn't see one I liked better after seeing it there. It was a cardigan with one button.
