“Worth Going Just for the Cafe!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014 via mobile

I met up with 2 friends just before Christmas for lunch. We had a browse in the shop and stopped for lunch Md then went back into the cafe for tea and cake an hour later. The staff are always so friendly, the service is quick, the coffee is really good, prices are reasonable and the food is delicious. What more is there to say! Try it for yourself, you will not be disappointed.

“A lovely visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

Went along to buy some xmas decks, and whilst browsing paid only £5 for our daughter to see Santa and she got a gift for that price, what a treat and very well done, both Santa and his elf's are very friendly and go the extra mile.

Beautifully laid out store with so much to buy and they even have a tea shop selling home made cakes.

Well done all.

“Exciting news”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

A selection of yummy patisserie has been added to the already varied menu so their excellent coffee can be enjoyed along side lovely fruit tarts and slices. I sampled the delicious lemon meringue slice it would have been rude not too! All that and an amazing shop just a great way to spend Sunday afternoon.

“mmmm”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

Popped in to shop and while there ordered tea and scones for 2. Very nice setting and pleasant waitress but asked for some hot water to top up the pot. Well the scones were very nice even if we were given spread and not offered butter, but the hot water never turned up. Perhaps it was forgotten but they weren't exactly rushed off their feet.
It was a bit pricey but nice.
As we had lots of milk to have more tea it wouldn't cost them anything to give you a bit more water!
