Description: The Soup Kitchen, at the top of Church Lane overlooking St Mary’s Church, has been run by the Sandy family for over thirty years. We pride ourselves on our freshly cooked food and are so flattered that folk keep coming back time and time again to visit us. When the weather is fine our roof top garden is always popular and it’s a great place to relax and let life pass you by. From Monday to Saturday we are open for breakfasts, morning coffees, lunches and afternoon teas. Everything is homemade and our team in the bake house work throughout the day turning out delicious pastries, cakes and other delicacies. We offer table and self-service.

Like many others this is an old favourite and one I shall go back to over and over again. Lots of choice, huge tasty scones and other cakes. We have enjoyed luch and afternoon tea and as yet never been dissapointed. Very pretty and kind oif quirky place and in a beautiful lane by the church.
