Popped in for a late lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The menu was varied and enticing. I went for the spicy meatballs and pasta which was fresh, tasty and quickly served. There was also a very nice choice of cakes and puds, many home made. The staff were very friendly and polite and the place was very clean throughout. Prices... More

Always a good choice of daily specials alongside a good regular menu. Lots of vegetarian options as well as a few meat dishes too. We had the... More

Lovely cafe/bistrot opposite the Castle.. always busy but enough room to spread out into the conservatory and upstairs, which is full of atmosphere. Have eaten breakfast/brunch here recently, which offers a wide choice of tasty food and a special daily breakfast deal for around £6/7... and lunch with friends, and as I'm mostly veggie it suits me very well with...

Called in for a coffee & snack which was really lovely. Soup of the day was butternut squash which was really delicious. Decor is lovely as are the staff. Sprays of fresh flowers on the tables and in the window. Will definitely be calling in again soon.

Sunday 15th of Jan, been here a few times over the years and it just gets better, we both tried the mushroom lasagne for the first time today and it was superb. The staff made us very welcome and are a credit to this establishment. We will always call in here when in the area. Thanks so much Paul

Once you visit you won't go anywhere else for a brunch/lunch. The food is great (try their daily quiche specials) and the coffee is also fantastic. Not exactly the cheapest place you will ever go but worth every penny and the prices are not too bad. The main difficulty can be finding a seat but the service is quick so... More
