First visited this place 2 years ago when in the area. Very nice light lunches and cakes. An amazing array of crafts wools and materials plus sewing machines. Nice friendly staff and a children's play area.

Friendly service, freshly prepared food, fairly priced. We were lucky that the weather was nice enough to sit outside. Interesting craft shop, worth a visit

The best coffee around and very good tea for once. Home made cakes and scones freshly made and way too tempting. Prompt efficient service at the table. Spotlessly clean loos. Another hidden gem.
