Definitely a playground for kids and that's it. Terrible food, noisy, terrible service and dirty (including the girl who wipes the chairs with the cloth and then wipes the tables straight after with the same cloth).

Walking in your area. Decided to try your cafe. Had a lovely coffee and cheese scone. Only disappointment was the state of the drive down to parking area.
