“Wonderful place to visit, good food and reasonably priced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

Popped in for a drink after walking up Steep Hill, but seeing all the home made cakes on display, could not resist have a slice of Coffee and Walnut cake, which was so large, ended up sharing it. Steven who runs it, is very friendly and always has a smile. Prices are reasonable and seeing over people eating, the salads looked very good.

“Superb home made food and cakes to die for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

The title says it all, really. My wife and I regularly eat here, since Sanctuary relocated from The Lawn. The home made soups are simply delicious, the range and quality of the sandwiches and quiches are superb and the cakes are stunning. Everything is home made and tastes delicious. Well worth a visit. Oh, and great coffee, too.

“Nice new addition to Bailgate”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

Have been here a couple of times and have been impressed with what the new owners have done. Lunches are good value and good quality as well. They serve a range of homemade soups and sandwiches, both of which are very tasty. The sandwiches also come with a sizable portion of fresh (and interesting) salad; not simply a sprig of iceberg lettuce ;-). There is also a deli section which sells a range of goods. Definitely a welcome addition to the Bailgate.
