A fair basis choice of fresh soup, salads, sandwiches, baked potatoes, cakes, NT scones etc & drinks. But sadly all served in or on paper & cardboard. Such a shame

This was a lovely cafe. Homemade soups and scones. Delicious cakes and good cappuccino. Lots of other tasty snacks available as well as small gifts such as popcorn, fudge or gingerbread cake.

This coffee shop is better than a lot of National Trust outlets, and we were amazed at how quickly we were served. The quality of the coffee was not too bad, despite being served in paper cups.
