I stopped here with one of our B&B guests. We had a lovely lunch, the staff were very friendly and it is spotlessly clean.

We enjoyed good cappuccinos and home made bara brith and sticky ginger and date cake. When we looked at the lunch menus we wished we had time to stay for savouries. The light airy surroundings were pleasant. Very well stocked gift shop beside the cafe.

The Old Printing Office looks like a gift shop at first but opens up into an enclosed courtyard. The menu is varied and imaginative serving a range of healthy food. They specialise in home made crumpets but don't serve them at lunch
