At these prices they should have a card machine ouch it's dear! Even if the food is fresh and tasty when it is cafe food it shouldn't be so pricey. Pretty town with lots of character.

Visited with family for a quick pit stop after a long walk. Ordered coffee and cake. The victoria sponge cake was amazing! You can tell it was homemade! Really moist and tasty. We also sampled the coffee cake which was equally delightful. Would highly recommend....More

Enjoyed a lovely cream tea here today after an 8-mile or so walk in the area with my walking group. Service was friendly and efficient and they had relaxing selection of war-time songs playing in the background. The rest of my group also enjoyed their...More

Following a lovely walk with our pup, this cafe was a welcome stop for our lunch. The sandwiches we ordered were huge, very tasty and so filling we sadly didn’t have room to sample the cake selection offered. Will have to save that treat for...More

Sorry we only had cake and coffee when we visited. I know there was soup on the menu, but did not take notice if any vegetarian food was there.
