“Lovely lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

called in on spec last week, and eight of us had a great lunch in the sunshine.They were a bit short of gluten free stuff for one of our party, but the soups were excellent, and the chips served in a plant pot were historic! sandwiches superb too. Staff were very helpful, even moving tables around for us.

“What a lovely lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012 via mobile

By chance we parked behind the Centre and on walking past the specials board for the cafe was interesting. At first glance we were a bit wary but in the end stayed and ordered lunch - home made spinach carbonara plus a burger with all the trimmings. They were both excellent and reasonably priced for the village. Give it a try.
