Having visited the adjacent Abbey ruins, Diane & I dropped in for a coffee/cake before returning home. We found a warm welcome on a cold Saturday morning and the young staff impressed with first-class service, nothing was too much bother!

Super place for really quality food whether it's a coffee and cake or a full meal. Reasonably priced, pleasant staff and, in nice weather, outside seating taking in the Abbey buildings. Massive Sunday lunch at carvery pub prices.

A beautiful building in equally beautiful surroundings. A warm autumnal Sunday so I decided to take the family for a walk around the Abbey followed by coffee and cake.
Met with cigarette ends and rubbish around the outside tables, and a long queue inside for coffee.
2 of about 5 cakes on display were labelled which looked a bit 'can't be bothered' so we didn't bother. Coffee was ordinary.
A real shame, maybe caught things at the wrong time on the wrong day. Maybe next time.....

We'd spent a couple of hours round the Abbey so decided to have lunch at the cafe. The food being served looked delicious; they gladly accommodated a tweak in our order for me.The food was reasonably priced. The ham sandwich looked lovely - great, thick slices of ham with fresh salad; served with big hand-cut chips. My salad was lovely too.
