Visited this establishment with friends for lunch while holidaying in the area, what a great find, great lunches with very reasonable portions and good prices, the food was hot, fresh and very tasty; the staff are very friendly. A must place to visit if visiting this town.

The warm scones were fresh and delicious and came with a huge portion of jam and clotted cream. Polite friendly staff coped well with a very busy lunchtime service. This is... More

We bought the daily special of coffee and pastry. The ordinary filter coffee was bitter and the pastry stale - forgettable

Perfect place to sit in the sun after walking with the dogs along the beach from Charmouth. We could see where we had walked, the hot chocolate with whipped cream was brilliant, the bowl of water for the dogs gratefully received!
