The cafe features beautiful original paintings by George Biles. A Bridport artist famous locally for his creative signwriting in the 1920s.

Was in the area so went to see Rob Beckett, which had sold out. Was able to pick up a couple of returns but was very impressed by the helpful staff and volunteers. A really interesting building
