Was taken here by my friend who is a regular and was not disappointed. I had a Big Mick's breakfast which was freshly cooked by Mick himself and struggled to finish. Very clean premises and dog friendly too. Definitely reccommend

So lovely to see people putting their back into something. This is a dog friendly cafe on the High Street, but the coffee is excellent, the sandwiches proper doorstep bread slices and good fillings and service with a lovely smile - well done girls

My husband and I had a 'big Micks' full English which set us up for the day. A lovely little friendly local cafe. Our well-behaved border Collie was also welcome.

We stopped on for a bite to eat for lunch and were welcomed by the charming Jill who provided a lovely service. We can throughly recommend the 'Posh fish finger baguette' made fresh to order by Mick! Yum. Stop by for some great local food and hospitality.
