Closed on Tuesdays. Though we will be open throughout the year.

A simple village cafe that I found to be quite satisfying to visit; home cooking and inexpensive. Their cakes are special.

I have to say about this place which I have known very well that the owner Fiona makes first class cakes and the quality is excellent. Very tasty.

We were disapointed by the food, the cakes weren't as tasty as predicted and way too sweet (I had to remove some or almost all of the frosting -wich wasn't totally smooth - of my victorian spongecake). It was also too expensive for the quality of the food we were given...

But the staff were very friendly and welcoming. As they didn't accept visa card and we didn't have any cash, we had to leave to get some (and of course the only ATM in town was out of order). We did finally pay the next day.

Very cramped seating, not comfortable. Last time we went for lunch food was not good and service was not good either. I wouldn't recommend it except maybe for a quick coffee.

Thank you for your review though we are a little puzzled. We do try to cater for everyone and we do appreciate that we cannot always please everyone..... doesn't stop us trying though !

We have wooden chairs, padded chairs, sprung seated chairs and a sofa so I am unsure what type of chair we might have provided for you to meet with your approval. I do appreciate your taking the time to write a review .

We had our dog with us so were limited as to where we could eat. The "Spill the Beans Cafe" was very welcoming (Speial area for eating with pets - even goldfish!). The food was excellent and reasonably priced. They have a 'wall of fame' with pictures of their pet 'clients which is nice.
