We had a delicious lunch here. The soup was amazing. The woman who runs the café, Claire told us some stories of her life and the village that were captivating. So glad we stopped by!!

Very friendly and obliging staff ; THE most delicious ham sandwiches complete with coleslaw, salad etc. But... The cakes are such a disappointment ! Stodgy, somewhat stale and a bit tasteless. Get the desserts right and this place could be a hit.

Not a bad spot if you're not too fussy. The staff are really warm and welcoming but the food is a little heavy in terms of butter or dressing and salad cream.
