I opted for the mushrooms on toasted thick granary bread with 2 poached eggs. Absolutely fabulous served on a rustic earthenware plate. I can't recommend this place any higher, I can't wait to come try the full English.

Charming little place to eat. Great menu, excellent food and service. Nothing is too much trouble for the serving staff, and the chef is very obliging if you have special requests. Only a small cafe so it's a good idea to book on busy days.
