We had a fabulous coffee here this morning. The gentleman on the till (the owner I think) was pleasant, smiling and appeared happy to be there. My wife described her coffee as perfect. I thoroughly enjoyed mine too. We were so pleased that after we had been for a walk we called back in for afternoon tea. Which was equally... More

Been a couple of times now, shop is really good, with lots of unusual gifts, the cafe is also good, but food is pricey but they do excellent coffee and drinks.
