Hi, nice cafe with good atmosphere. Personally love the coffees and home made cakes. Also very nice in the summer as the garden is taking shape nicely!

We had a lovely lunch in this central cafe-service was a little slow and menu is somewhat limited but still tasty and good value. It has an interesting gallery upstairs and has lots of space for functions and parties. A lovely little town to visit!
