Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

Popped in for a light lunch while visiting this lovely town. Soup and sandwich combo was excellent and a grand coffee to finish. An interesting find and run by charming people. Couldn't be more central

“A lovely little cafe/tea room”
Reviewed 29 April 2014 via mobile

I love this charming little cafe where simple things are done perfectly. Homemade snacks, soup, cakes, scones and light meals all freshly made and served with charm, grace and a smile by adults. There should be a Wakeman's House in every town in England... They'd make a fortune.

We had a very tasty lunch of homemade quiche, salad and fresh bread and a chicken wrap with salad. The ingredients were lovely and fresh, the meals were filling and the service was great.
