Some people are never pleased....don't listen to the negatives. This is a lovely Cafe which is just that....a Cafe. Drinks, cakes and a tasty light lunch are what to expect. The prices aren't the cheapest in the Forest of Dean, but by no means are they the most expensive. Personally, I don't rate around a 5ver each for tea/coffee and a home made cake that bad. My daily Cafe Nero costs more than that!!
We had a nice chat with the waitress that was there, who was happy to talk about the locally sourced coffee and the strawberries from her garden that made up the filling of my red velvet cake. My wife also had a chocolate and beetroot brownie...both of ours were delicious and a far cry from the boring muffins and sponges we've tried elsewhere.
It's not a conventional experience at this cafe, but in our opinion that makes it all the more interesting...it's casual yet polite service, which in a cafe suits us fine...we've visited a couple of times now, and at the end of the day, if you want a fried, cheap, pub lunch on a wooden table, head to one of the pubs near the river. If you fancy sitting in a beautiful, private garden with a cup of organic coffee and a home-made cake, this place gets our vote every time.
