I was very pleased to discover that I was able to have coconut milk in my hot drink, as I am dairy free. Friendly staff. Love the charity shop and furniture charity shop too.

Went there during the school holidays with our daughter and two grandchildren. Plenty of parking. Nice cafe for food and drinks, we only had drinks but they were good. Great fun bowling! Will definitely go again.
