Fabulous coffee and warm welcoming atmosphere. Lots of choice. Need to visit this place to understand its appeal. Quite quirky and worth every penny.

Hi, thank you for your great review. I'm very sorry you were left disappointed to find that we are closed on Sundays & were closed today. Just to explain a little, that at the moment Steve, the owner (my husband) puts in 6 days plus at the café, including shopping, prepping, doing the books in the evening etc. Whilst I appreciate alot of cafés in town are open Sundays Steve really does need a rest one day a week...(He's not as young as he used to be!) However in actual fact we spend a good portion of our Sundays at the café cleaning and prepping for the following day. We were closed this bank holiday as Steve had to pay a flying visit to family in Hertfordshire and again today's bank holiday was spent at the café cleaning and prepping ready for tomorrow. I do understand that today we do expect places to be open 7 days a week, but at the end of the day we are just a one-off family run independent. We like to think this uniqueness makes us special and it's what people love about the café. Maybe one day we will restructure and bring in a manager with double the staff on a rota system and Steve can kick- back and pop in every now and then to make sure its all running smoothly. Once again I apologise you were disappointed to find us closed. I normally remember to type a note up for the gates which I didn't today. Sorry about that. There was a customer announcement posted on our Facebook page however. Again, thank you for your excellent review... We will take on board your compliments and also your points regarding our opening days & times.. In the mean-time please continue to love our quirky 'independent' 'non-chain' ways! Warm regards & see you soon we hope, Sarah
