Had quick lunch stop here while waiting for train, Surprised how good it is. They had ran out of jacket potatoes but actually pleased they had as it made me choose a panini. Really cosy and friendly. Will definitely go again. Good prices too

Warm, cosy and comfortable without ever being old-fashioned. A selection of different seating types to go with the excellent selection of hot and cold snacks (and not your usual mass-produced nonsense either). Independently owned and run with permanently friendly staff who know their jobs and...More
