We called in here this week after a 10 mile walk along the Thames from Shillingford. It was just what we needed. A comfortable sofa to collapse into, friendly and efficient staff, great tasting food and a lovely cup of tea.

We were passing through to Oxford and stumbled on this little gem. Lovely independent coffee shop on the square - a lovely welcome with great coffee and cake!. Had the chocolate cake (yum) and the tiffin (even better)
