Part of a department store, this cafe/restaurant is clean, bright and has pleasant, attentive staff. My favourite here is the cheese and onion toastie and Americano coffee. All you need then is a window seat on market day (Thursday) nd you can watch the world.

The ambience is nothing special but service is always delivered with a smile. It's the one place around where they put them Buttert on the toasted teacakes while they're still hot in the kitchen. Succulent!

Having just been ignored in River Cottage across the road, we were pleased that this establishment was far more welcoming from the offset. Pleasant surrounding, friendly staff, drinks and cake was fine.

Pop in to the Trinity Coffee shop often, and always well treated, with quick, efficient service. Market day on Thursday can be busy. They do a mean cappacino!

Simple menu but staff are helpful and will try to find something to suit all diets and tastes. The atmosphere is calm and restful.

Went in for a hot drink and cake. The carrot cake and Coffee and Walnut cakes were excellent. No complaints about the hot drinks either. Friendly service, highly recommended.

Went in with a friend for lunch. We enjoyed soup, wasn't fantastic but perfectly edible. We enjoyed looking out the window and watching the world go by. We had a mooch around the shop and tried on some clothes.
