Me and my Hubby popped in here Tuesday morning. The Cafe area at the front looked clean enough but we weren't hungry so we just had a browse around the shop. It had the usual array of over-priced Welsh gifts and crafts. There was also...More

Really great cafe. Milkshakes, coffee and tea. Double espresso only £1.70. Shakes and tea good too. Even the chance of a contract chair whilst under the walls of the castle.

A very convenient location directly opposite the castle entrance and ideal for a shank and a drink before or after a visit to the castle. A bit pricey compared to the other local cafes but well worth a visit.

Called in to escape a shower on a stormy afternoon & were rewarded with excellent coffee and a very tasty honeycomb tiffin. Right opposite the castle entrance & a good place to watch the world go by.

Able to order quickly but got our cakes on our table before we even sat down and then didn't have our hot chocolates until at least another 10 minutes. Very slow service but the cakes and hot chocolate were lovely. Tiffin very hard to cut...More

We visit often, and one day... perhaps... we will be served quickly and efficiently. But it hasn't happened so far. It doesn't stop us coming though, as we see so many people we know here, which fills up the time quite nicely between placing our...More
