My friend introduced me to this venue and it wasn't a disappointment. A varied menu with really tasty food, good service and a quaint venue. The only downside is you have to pay in cash. Cards are not accepted.

The most delicious goats cheese and chilli jam sandwich from the cutest lunch venue. Cakes were also really tasty with a nice homemade selection.

Passing through & needed a quick lunch. This place is friendly, with an interesting menu and quick service. We had a smoked salmon open sandwich & a cheese toasted sandwich, each had generous side salads & both went down a treat! Would thoroughly recommend.

Yes they do , however it would depend on what time in the morning , don't think it opens first thing . If I recall , it doesn't to a hotel type breakfast menu , but worthwhile trying out, £10 should cover it
