My wife and I had lunch for the first time here recently whilst visiting the garden centre. The food we ordered was freshly prepared and quickly brought out to us. The staff were very polite and attentive and the food itself was plentiful and delicious, the chips you could tell were hand cut and freshly cooked to order, lovely! We were so full we couldn't manage anything else despite being really tempted by the array of lovely cakes on offer: we shall be returning for those another time. Well worth a visit for refreshment anytime.

First visited two years ago and was disappointed but that has changed after our visit yesterday. Used a Groupon for a cream tea and it was outstanding value at under £8 for two people. The service, so poor previously, was efficient and friendly. The cutlery and crockery, which had to be replaced because it was dirty last time, was clean and matched. The tea/coffee was fine, the scones and cake were good and the sandwiches very nice, if a little on the doorstep side but that suited me fine. There is indoor and outdoor seating but we chose indoors, it rather lacks ambiance but it is a cafe in a in the grounds of a specialist fish shop and using that criteria it's pretty good. Not sure of the original price but based on yesterdays expirence I would certainly recommend a visit using a reduced price Groupon.

A very small cafe where breakfast stops around 11.30. It seems a busy place where we ordered coffees along with Gammon, Eggs and Chips. The cappuccino's were very weak so had to pay for extra shots but the Gammon lunch was freshly cooked and tasty - shame they didn't double fry the chips, Overall it looked clean, tidy and the food was reasonable. The Ladies and Gents are due for refurbishment in the very near future and they do need it. Overall it was okay.

Having been invited to afternoon tea as part of a friends birthday gift I was pleasantly surprised. We had a lovey round of sandwiches followed by scone and cake and plenty of tea. A really good price so remember to pop in sometime soon .

Met a friend here for breakfast which was lovely and a good price. However wish it hadn't filled me up quite so much as the range of homemade cakes was stunning and looked delicious. Will definitely be back to try them!
