I came here for lunch today, having been promising myself to do so for a while now. It's a quirky retro looking place with a very nice vibe to it and the staff are very friendly indeed. I had the Ploughmans Lunch and it was...More

Hector's Shed changed hands very recently but little has changed - still the same cosy space, friendly service, great cakes and a warm welcome for well-behaved dogs.

Small little corner cafe. Really friendly staff and a family like atmosphere. I had the vegan bowl, which I highly would recommend. All ingredients were fresh, healthy and their home made hummus is amazing!

Popped in here for a quick cuppa but could not resist a piece of their home made carrot cake. It was delicious. The service was second to none and would recommend for a lovely catch up with friends. Great location too.

If you like the costa or run of the mill, be seen at venues,then probably not your bag, The menu will suit all but fast food freaks, veggie and vegan. Sandwiches are a full meal, no expense spared on ingredients. Cake selection, best I’ve seen....More

This is a very average cafe with staff that did not seem to be awake. I asked for tea without milk and was later asked if I'd ordered a latte without milk!! Not sure what I would have got if I'd said yes?
