I always stop when I'm driving in the area. Poached eggs on toast every time . They're always perfect. Great staff and great fresh food .

For a basic Café in what (for Southern England) is relatively the middle of nowhere, it’s cheap and cheerful, but in relation to what you would expect elsewhere, its pretty poor cheap catering fare. For convenience, by all means stop for bite, otherwise continue to Warminster or Salisbury for better choice and value.

We have been in here many times on our trips to and from Bristol. It is a great pit stop about halfway on our journey from Southampton. All great meals beautifully freshly cooked to order.

We were driving from our home in Kent to Wells in Somerset and needed a break for lunch. This is an all day breakfast place and the people there were so friendly. The toilets were lovely and clean. The food was tasty, the only thing my husband didn't like was that it wasn't Heinz ketchup. The food itself was delicious.

This is by far one of the best "transport" Cafe's, they serve really well cooked, tasty food at very reasonable prices. I plan my journeys so I am hungry on my way past here.

Went with a friend up to Frome and he often calls in here. Great place – real food, freshly cooked – real service from the owners – honest and down to earth.

We've been here a few times now instead of the little chef up the road. And every time we love it. The ladies whom work there are fab. Friendly and polite . The food isn't over priced and is great . My daughters love it there and even wanted to say bye to pretty much everyone there. Will always stop... More

We use this cafe almost every time we go to Salisbury. The staff are friendly and will go out of their way to accommodate your food needs. It is honest home cooked food and their cod and chips are lovely as is their steak pie dinners. This cafe is clean and has a five star food and hygiene rating and... More
