We go there for the cafe rather than the books. Excellent doorstep sandwiches served with salad and crisps. Quality bean to cup coffee. Superb range of cake. Eat inside or out in a very pretty cottage garden. Very friendly staff,

Sat on a sunny lunchtime outside with a sandwich. Beautiful fresh bread, sausage rolls and cake are fab. Well worth a visit. Book choice is huge but you need time to enjoy!
