We had evening meal here and it was okay. The service was okay, the food was okay and the surroundings were okay. Nothing was objectionable but then nothing was special either. It was good value and tasty enough. Not a bad place or choice but...More

A light lunch before a trip to the cinema. It's a quirky little place but full of character and atmosphere. There's also some seating outside if the weather allows, although there are heaters and canopies. We had the mackerel pate which was excellent. Well priced...More

The absolute best of this cafe is the staff - welcoming, unpretentious, available without being intrusive. I had humus and prawns. Both okay, with an acceptable presentation. Not a huge choice of food and lack of local beer though.

Called in here yesterday for drinks, the sun was shining, so sat outside, had to ask for some clothes to dry off the seats & table, which they brought out, and handed them to us, strange though, we had to dry them off ourselves! We...More

This place has a nice little area to sit out in. Problem is, you could sit there half the day waiting for staff to come out and serve you. Despite the fact the place was empty inside and nearly the same outside, all the staff...More

Hi, the shepherds hut is outside the main restaurant. It is fab, but probably a little small for 12. I would definitely book it for a party of around 8.
