We had lunch here. They have an excellent gluten-free menu which includes sandwiches. The burger was the best my husband had eaten in a long while and my pasty was lovely with large chucks of meat. Good value all round.

We called in for tea before we set off home. Simple menu, freshly cooked, tasty homemade food. Immaculately clean, small and cosy cafe. What more can I say other than call in and see for yourself!!
