Stumbled across this Gallery and Cafe while wandering around Ashbourne. Lovely gallery, with an exceptional cafe upstairs. Very attentive staff, nice surroundings and excellent food. We had the Ploughman’s sharing platter, the best ploughmans I have ever had. Highly recommend

Having seen the cafe on a dog-friendly website we popped in for coffee and toasted teacake and received a great welcome. They are obviously popular with locals and holiday-makers alike and we can understand why!

Happened on this gem on a wander around Ashbourne and what a great find! From the bottomless teapots to the loveliest scones we've had in ages and really friendly staff. Well worth a visit for the teas and lunches and the great art.
