Love this place. Whether you want a coffee, cake, bacon sarnie or a pizza this is the place to go. Even in the rain on a dog walk, you've got some shelter from the weather in their outside seating area. Couldn't get nicer staff, who...More

Stopped for a nice lunch on a sunny day food was actually nice but the guy working was seriously rude. Rolling eyes in front of other staff so I could see. Lovely local cafe shame about the staff

Pretty ignorant staff, bad coffee and numerous bad reviews on here. This is a place that rests on the laurels of its location with no designs on customer service. Go to coffee #1 over the road instead

Lovely cafe in the park. And excellent value. But only complaint asked butter free and they put butter on it. So being British I continue and didn't say anything. And it is only minor. To be honest I didn't need the roll filling was ample....More
