Looking forward to a lovely breakfast after a long night shift. What I received was a greasy, awful tasting mess. Burnt toast, greasy undercooked bacon - I stopped eating there and left it. Still had to pay full price £17.10 for 2 breakfast & 2 small cokes. Never again, steer clear.

Stopped for breakfast which was fantastic, I had a full English which was well cooked and fresh, and in abundance. It was great to be offered alternative eggs such as poached. My wife was really happy to be able to have cinnamon toast as something different for breakfast. Would strongly recommend this tearoom, it is a really friendly environment which... More

This small cafe has recently been refurbished by a new owner, who is also the chef (I believe). There is seating inside which was lovely and cool on a hot day, and some outside seating in a... More
