We stopped in to re-energize with a cream tea and were very pleased with the quality of food and service. A very comfortable setting and some unexpectedly interesting people watching!

Close to the bus station and tourist info centre so very convenient for those on foot.

Small cafe - great bacon & mushrooms on an English muffin, good tea.
I've been to this cafe alone and with visitors several times over the last 5 yrs or so - always good hot simple food - reasonable price. Lovely waitress - rather surly man at the counter though so don't take it personally.
I forgot to check when I was there the other day but they used to sell simple tea-pots and charming tea-cosies which had been hand-knitted by the waitress.
Other customers tend to be more mature - I have taken my mum there, but I have also gone there with old school friends.
Handy location - opposite townhall, near bus-station and shops - as it is so cosy (small) I think you might struggle to get a pushchair inside.

This is near the bus station, opposite the Library and near the gateway which gives the cafe its name. Went in for breakfast and ordered full English for two, with a coffee and a tea. The food was lovely and tea is served in a proper little teapot with a tea cosy! Tea pots are a feature in the cafe. The place is very small - only about 6 tables - but the service was good and the food very tasty, all locally sourced.

A very small cafe near to the cathedral. A wonderful freshly made full english breakfast at a very resonable price.
