Lovely relaxing setting, friendly staff and attentive service. The coffee was by far the best in the area, served with an array of home made cakes and bakes. To top off our visit, I enjoyed a slice of gluten free chocolate cake, which was yummy!!

We enjoyed our sandwich which we shared so that we could have a scone and a slice of cake. We like the little room at the back and the water provided whilst you make your choice.
