Cafe, gallery, bar, poetry, jazz, live music and the list goes on! One of the liveliest places to visit with the friendliest staff you'll ever come across. Oh and the community spirit! I've visited a lot of community spaces and never have I come across people as dedicated to making their town shine as much as these guys.

We went to Stepping Stones as a group of 10 for a Christmas bash and had a fantastic evening. The food was delicious and plentiful, and the staff were friendly and attentive. They made us feel so welcome and catered for everything (even the forgotten vegetarian!). A great evening was had by all and i would like to send a big thank you to the stepping stones team.
