Both of the kids had fish finger sandwiches. My oldest couldn't actually open her mouth wide enough to be able to take a bite it so big...yummy and worth the money. Great food and drinks and they serve alcoholic beverages too.

This is a lovely café, with great cakes (including gluten free options) and friendly staff. It is however very snug inside with not much space between tables there is not space to accommodate large parties however it was comfortable for our party of 4. A nice touch is the addition of fleeces to keep outside diners warm on cold days.
