Description: Although called the 'general store', a name that harks back to the days when the buildings owners opened it as a store in 1910 ( the same family still owns the building) in fact it is a licensed cafe specialising in tasty good quality food at a sensible price.

Loved the setting- Rustic with mismatching chairs. Friendly staff took our order. Most interesting dish on the menu was breakfast cake. My partner ordered it and I wish I had. It was a kind of oat cake with sugar and cinnamon sprinkled across the top, served with hot milk- was light and yummy. The coffee was great too. The breakfasts were well priced.

I hope they were cleaning out and redoing, for it was a huge mess. Half of the place was closed & the furniture was torn & very worn. As for the pantry to purchase food items, it was almost empty and the toilet was out of order. Chose to eat else where.

Had lunch here following a cave tour. Good selection of home baked food at reasonable prices. A little run down looking but great food, great coffee & friendly staff. A very country atmosphere. Toilets also available.

Nice place to stop for a coffee and snack. If you are lucky you may visit when the pianist is on duty.

This was a nice little place to stop for coffee and cake. A great selection and friendly service. There were lots of comfy seats and a little breakfast menu as well.
