Thank you Polly R for this fantastic review. New vegan chocolate and beetroot cake looks great today! Vegan lunches are also a highlight.

The gallery has an ever-changing display of art, and whether it's to your taste or not, it's always interesting. The cafe has what I consider to be the best cake in the world. There's a pleasant outside seating area too. Perfect.

we were looking for somewhere whose menu did not offer predominantly fish and this turned out to be an excellent choice. Great pies, tasty salad and really nice bottled drinks - absolutely great value and all served with a smile. We will be visiting again

Went for coffee, fell in love with the art on display. We were able to sit outside in the charming yard. The cakes looked really good, but we were too full to try them. A good excuse to go back again another day.
