Although features on the TV a while back I'd not been before but I'll certainly be going back! I had a mint/choc milkshake which had been made with home-made fresh mint ice cream to accompany the best treacle tart I've ever had. Although the prices are a tad higher than most tea rooms in the area, I feel they are very justified but the taste sensation and very high standard. Cakes & drinks for 4 adults came to £15 so less than £4 per head. We didn't leave sufficient time on our visit to have a proper look at the Library & historical displays but it was very effectively presented and gave a basic over view of the area. Very well appointed facilities.

Going through Caistor is a regular route for us but due to the lack of signage we have missed this delight before. So glad we found it. It is a lovely renovation of a chapel. There is plenty of information on the walls and the stairs lead up to the local library. The current exhibition can be found here and this is changed a few times a year.
The highlight is the cafe. Luckily on the day we went it was a sunny day and there are chairs outside, otherwise we would have had to wait for a table. We had a lunch of bacon,brie and cranberry wrap and an omelette. Both were delicious. There is a wide choice of coffees, teas and gorgeous cakes as well as a menu to suit many tastes.

The architecture is clever and functional. The cafe serves good quality food (somewhat slowly) v relaxing

I'm "only" reviewing the Café at this establishment but it was the best coffee I've had in ages, splendid toasted tuna sandwich (no panninis but a very acceptable alternative) and a wonderful orange, white chocolate & raspberry sponge. Highly recommended!
