Small friendly café, easy to find just off Castle Square. Very busy with local clients but staff made us feel very welcome. Simple unpretentious menu and food ordered arrived without delay. Just a pity the breakfast menu wasn't 'all day'!More

Stopped in for an afternoon cupa after walking around the castle. Was delighted to find the best cup of tea we had during our entire holiday. We also had a lovely piece of lemon drizzle cake. This place is definitely worth looking for.
