We had lunch in here twice and thought the food was variable. The locally smoked chicken sandwich was delicious; as was the lemon cupcake but other items were pretty run of the mill. Unfortunately we were unable to sample the scones as there were none left....surely a good sign but on "coffee morning" day it may be an idea to have extras for the afternoon as several people were asking for the scones. Staff were pleasant but it would be an idea to ensure someone is always at front of house for customers arriving.

Only paid a brief visit, but were dismayed to find the premises up for sale. Surely a chance for someone to take over what must be one of the finest eating places in town.

This is the only place to get coffee in town there is nowhere else can match the quality. If you are visiting the town go early morning for Coffee, warm donuts or a hearty breakfast.

We popped in here for a cup of tea and cake and were very surprised. The exterior didn't look special at all but inside it was lovely. I had a huge fresh ring doughnut that I thoroughly recommend.
