Couldn't fault this cafe one bit. I used to visit with my grandparents as a child many years ago but it's been done up and improved massively since then as my grandparents visit occasionally. As soon as you walk in you're greeted with a friendly hello and warming smile making you feel very welcome. When we ordered at the counter... More

This is the second time we have been to this cafe, the first visit was disappointing in that it was not busy but the food took 50 minutes from ordering to arriving and the food was under cooked. We decided to give it one more go but this time the wait was short and all was well until the food... More

Many thanks Karen, our cakes, scones and pastries are made locally, the lady who makes them usually wins the Baker award at the Collingham show every year. I am sure she just polishes it ready for its return. Thank you for sharing your experience More

It also had a disabled toilet which was very clean also & spacious. The prices are very reasonable & I would recommend the cafe to anyone. I will certainly... More

We all popped in to have a light lunch after we had walked around the market and shops. You have to order and pay for your food inside, which we did, and may as well have served to food to ourselves as well. The young waitresses didn't have a clue about service. The portions were reasonable, and the traditional lemonade... More

Popped in for lunch whilst in Retford shopping with my daughter. She had homemade feta, basil and tomato quiche, I had small ploughmans. Both were decent portions and both very tasty. Food reasonably priced and very friendly service

We visited here on Charter Day for lunch and we were very pleasantly surprised. It didn't seem very cheap but the food we got was excellent and the service was good too. We had a very acceptable lunch with drinks for £15 (for two of us). We will certainly go back again
