Out for a walk last weekend my partner and I stopped off for a coffee. The place itself is a bread factory with tables and chairs at the front almost like an open plan factory/cafe. The coffee is very good, free water and a good...More

If you have allergies or food intolerances this isn't the place for you! Staff members most unhelpful and they stated all sandwiches are pre-prepared, therefore unable to cater for customers with allergies. Not willing to make a sandwich for a customer with allergies. Also, equally...More
