This is a brilliant place to eat large portions of food at good prices, cooked fresh as you order. Brilliant setting too especially in summer. Good customer service too. Pints of tea and coffee and all sorts of other weird combinations also are available!

Just back from our walking holiday in the Peak District. Stumbled upon this little "ramblers" cafe while walking Padley Gorge. The all day breakfast was fantastic and the size of portions appropriate to sustain the long distance ramblers and hikers. The outdoor seating area is...More

This cafe does exactly what it says on the tin. A big board of every meal you can get. A great non pretentious place to get a hearty lunch / breakfast. The chips are great!

We’ve been here a few times. It’s not the prettiest cafe in the world but great after the end of a walk through Padley gorge. Great coffee and food at decent prices.

A lovely and convenient cafe right next to the railway station. Good food with loads of choice. Wide choice of drinks. Inside and outside seating. What’s not to like?
