We stopped by this lovely little place on a cold rainy Sunday afternoon. The biggest plus about this place was they are dog-friendly which is a huge bonus. The staff were friendly and helpful regarding the drinks menu, and the ice-cream (of which there many flavours to choose from) was delicious.

A lovely place to visit. Pretty village clean and tidy. A nice little chip shop quite busy but they are fast. And worth the small wait. Plenty of seating or theres a large grassy park opposite.

Stopped here for a cup of coffee on our way home after a good day out. The young man on duty ignored us when we went in and carried on pottering about doing noting in particular. He was polite enough when we went over to the counter for service. But a friendly hello would have perhaps given it a 4

Coffee great but still poor choice of cake. Only scones. Spoiled by staff still keeping glove on to take money after serving ice cream and then using same glove. Much better layout, cosy, and staff friendly

We popped in for icecreams as wanted to try local icecream rather than one we could get at home. It was busy when we got there, and we all tried different flavours. I had coffee, and to be honest it didn't really taste of much, it was also quiet icy to eat,(it had ice particles in) which is usually caused... More

Found this place purely by accident and what a find. Coffee was good and the ice cream sundaes were delicious. We ended up finding any excuse to visit and partake in coffee and ice cream.
