My wife, dog and I visited this cafe on 9/12/2018. My wife asked if we could come in with our dog and we were refused entry. We have lived on the IOW for just over a year now and have visited many cafes and pubs...More

We dropped in here twice on a long figure-of eight walk (the cafe being at the crossover!) on a very hot day. Good tea, an excellent and well-filled toasted sandwich; fast and friendly service. A really wide menu of basic, and not-so basic, cafe fare....More

We stopped here on the way back to Bembridge after walking along the coast from Seaview. We certainly needed a large cup of tea and the tea here is really good - along with a slice of cake, sitting outside, it was perfect. Good value,...More
