Lovely place. Refreshing, cosy, not to busy and spacious enough. Smiley and efficient service, chat but not too much. HIGH quality food with great variety. Wish I lived in village to come here everyday for this coffee!

Charming tearoom/café. Warm, bustling but not noisy, lots of doggie traffic in and out. Delicious lunch - soup, salad, sandwich. My husband's need for gluten-free was readily accommodated. Good service, good food, nice atmosphere.
