Thank you ladies for baking extra scones for our family reunion. The went down really well with our guests and the home made jam and clotted cream just topped it! We appreciate the trouble you went to to help us out so thanks again.

“Marvellous light lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

My wife and I visited on Saturday afternoon and we were very impressed.

Service was friendly and attentive . The food was first-class. My wife had scone with cream and apple and kiwi-fruit jam - the latter was so good we bought a jar. I had an open sandwich of poached salmon: simple, tasty and delicious.


This is a wonderful place for a coffee or a light lunch. I would recommend highly it you you all.

“Fantastic home baking and Gluten free”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

Stopped here for coffe and cake. Fantastic. Lovely hot coffee and amazing home baking. Sultana scone was light and delicious with homemade jam and the Gluten Free coconut and cherry cake went down a treat with my husband who usually can't get cake with his coffee as few cafes make Gluten Free a priority. All cakes are made fresh daily on site. Staff are friendly and helpful. Please, please advertise that you make Gluten Free cakes as this is so important for Coeliac sufferers. We walk past many cafes and coffee shops as we stuggle to get gluten free food so tell the world you make it!!!
