Nice friendly Cafe with good snacks. Located on the edge of the town. The bonus with this Cafe is it's dog friendly.

Visited on a Saturday at 3 - Cafe was closing. I was looking for a WC at the visitor centre but that appeared to be closed. A lady who worked in the cafe was outside so I asked if there was one around here (not in the cafe) - to which she replied quite rudely that I could use the one inside (only for paying customers). So whilst in there I thought I would buy a slice of cake priced at £3.10 (quite pricey for a slice of cake and taking the area into consideration) I thought this gesture would be appreciated, however judging by the manor of the staff it did not matter to them at all and they simply wanted to be anywhere else (even though customers were still in the cafe). The cake had bitter icing, was dry and very disappointing...Not worth the money and there is nicer places around.

waited for ages for cold capucchinos slopped over the tray,

cake slices smallest under the domes. .I said ,"I bet we get given the smallest" and we did.
Vintage tea plates used weren't clean.
Disappointed,so didn't complain,just wanted to get out of there and won't be back.
