Eddy thinks it is very good for lunch and cakes . I really enjoyed my lunch. The Welsh rarebit is delicious and accompanied by dressed salad. If you feel like something sweeter, they do a good variety of cakes.

Regarding the coffee, it is a less chocolatey- type of bean which comes down to personal choice.

We chose this cafe for a lunchtime snack as the menu appeared extensive, we were really hungry and there were plenty of tables. We should have realised the reason for this. The food took about 25 minutes to arrive - fair enough although we would have been happy to share my salad while the meat main course was prepared. My husband had the Badger Special Burger which was dry and overcooked and despite being really hungry he declined to finish this. I had the prawn, mackerel and avocado salad which although attractively presented had some very strange dried cabbage ? additions. To round off the visit one of the waitresses chose to grind what must have been a week's worth of coffee beans making it impossible for customers to talk.
We will not be returning.

Such a great cafe! Nice atmosphere, beautiful food and lovely setting. We had full English breakfast which wasn't greasy, just good quality food which was well cooked. Service friendly.

Went in with 4 adults, 2 kids under 6 and a dog. Lady serving could not have been more helpful despite being busy. Lovely atmosphere, cool decor, very clean and most importantly- amazing food. Our new fave place.

My daughter and I enjoyed an afternoon break here yesterday. The service was very good and our cakes were fresh and enjoyable. The prices were reasonable and I am happy to reccommend this establishment.
