Was recommended this little cafe by local residents as we pass it regularly. Had a lovely lunch, generous portions and milkshakes which made my eyes bigger than by belly (well almost). Excellent service in a lovely, well kept restaurant, will be back

Excellent food, service and tea. Slight issue with our food order which was quickly resolved with a friendly manager who gave us complimentary tea. Avo breakkie was great and this was the only place on our week holiday that managed to do crispy bacon for...my partner. Safe to say was a brilliant stop Would recommendMore

Went in this cafe - on the basis of good reviews and on our route. Most heads turned as we walked in - did we have 'English' written on our foreheads?!! We sat down and my partner went to the loo(!!). The young male waiter...passed me as I sat waiting without acknowledgement and cleared another table. On his return I asked for menus. He passed me again without bringing them, then finally brought them. I asked if it was table service and he just said 'yes' - no more. My partner returned, we studied the menus, decided what we'd have, then waited - and waited. The young male waiter didn't come back, and the next I saw, he was sitting eating! Another customer came in, walked up to the servery, came back and sat down, then was served by another waitress! All the time we sat there , no one acknowledged us or asked what we wanted. In the end, didn't seem any point in waiting any longer so we just left! Don't know if they don't like non-locals or we didn't follow the correct rules - but customer service definitely needs much improvement!!More

Popped in for a full English on our last morning before going home, and left with a stack of cakes and treats for the car journey. Lovely staff, lovely food (the bacon was amazing) and delicious coffee.

Stopped here on the way home after a wedding in the local area. Lovely friendly local café with excellent service. The place was very busy at breakfast time. The food was excellent and plentiful and at a very good price too. Freshly made to order....Premises are clean and tidy and the kitchen can be seen from the seating area. The staff were very polite and helpful. Great experience and even better food.More

Viseted here after staying across the road in the estery Hotel. Upon entering it was nice and warm clean and tidy. Ordered by the counter and we had a Welsh breakfast ( bacon, sausage, mushrooms, laverbread, cockles and toast) the cafe was quite full and...the breakfast took about 5 minutes to arrive. It was very tasty and warm and would definitely recommend it to anyone. My fiancé used the toilets and said they were clean and tidy..More
