A real gem and well worth a visit. Once you step off the high street you could be anywhere. Lovely plants and a tranquil atmosphere with many hidden seating spots. Locally sourced produce as well.

Charming/trendy place, very friendly staff and great food at a decent price. Between the 3 of us we shared a BLT, a tomato soup, honey-glazed ham with egg and chips and a bacon butty: all very filling and delicious! Highly recommend!

I needed a private place for an important meeting and found a quiet corner in this delightful cafe. Everything was perfect - and the staff kind and attentive. Once the meeting was over I stayed for lunch which was delicious - very fresh.

Tea for 2 is £28.50. It is a bit dearer if you have prosecco or Champagne. Never had it but it looks gorgeous.
