A good selection of interesting sandwiches, ploughmans' and other lunch options. Cakes and smaller alternatives are very tasty. Service was friendly and more importantly prompt despite it being full. A nice relaxed lunch spot in a busy town.

Lovely little cafe below the clockmaker/repairer shop. Very friendly efficient staff, really good coffee and excellent value. Many clocks new, vintage and antique for sale around the cafe and upstairs. Well worth a visit.
