Very normal place to have breakfast/brunche. There is plenty of place so it was one of the few places where we could go on a Sunday without reservation.

The News Café has never let us down. Great tea. Delicous cakes and scones. Check the specials board for daily specials that don't disappoint. The staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating. You really have to try hard to not have a good time here.

Don't particularly recommend the coffee but nice selection of quick bites. I like the smoked salmon bagel. Quick service, and nice with it.

Very warm, relaxing cafe, food was nice and well priced Only gave 4 stars due to lack of salad we got with our meals. 1 leaf and 1 cucumber slice :-) This could do with being addressed Other than that , a nice spot for a quick bite to eat

Been infrequently popping into the News Café for years. Staff always helpful and cheerful. I have my occasional naughty fry-up here and look forward to it. Not keen on the tea, I'm a tea bag person but the coffee is good. Wife a very slow eater but we are never rushed. Toilets spotless.

Just off the main shopping street. We had a lovely coffee and panini and our daughter enjoyed the tea cake. Nice and cosy and perfect stop for a rest and recharge. Good food at a reasonable price.
