Disappointed with cakes of late. Service friendly but stopped going as cakes are either stale or burnt. Staff seemed disinterested when we asked for a replacement.

I came here for breakfast with my family and had, although very basic, a delicious sausage sandwich with great presentation. I also came here on work experience for three day in July 2016. I am so glad I came here, as my confidence around people has grown due to being in a working environment with such friendly and welcoming staff.... More

We often use this café as a cake stop on our cycle rides. We work up an appetite and can justify having worked off the calories. Friendly, helpful staff, a nice garden (when it's sunny) great for coffee and cake, or a cream tea.

Lovely café with lovely friendly staff and even better food, they do an amazing value for money full English breakfast and some superb lunches that cater for every sort of food allergies. I am a regular visitor myself and have always enjoyed the food. also set in a beautiful village perfect for walking.

The owners of this place are pure gold. The place itself is beyond idyllic. We went there for lunch today and when I said I was vegan (despite there being nothing 100% vegan on the menu) they made me a beautiful and filling vegan wrap with ripe avocado, gorgeous olives and tons of salad. All wonderfully presented and reasonably priced.... More

After our full English breakfast we both agreed that it was one of the best we'd ever had. A little off the beaten track but we'll worth the effort.

A lovely cafe in the heart of a picturesque village. Food is freshly made and tastes good. Cakes are (mostly) nice. The best thing for me is that I can go in with my doggies :)
