This was a great place for a coffee and cake after a visit to the Nut Reserve. The cake was home made and delicious. Save your visit till after the walk. You'll enjoy it more!!

We dropped in for a coffee and hot chocolate after out trip to the top of the Nut. The scones looked big and plump so we decided to go the whole hog and have them as well. It turned out to be a good decision as the scones were light and the jam and cream topped them off beautifully. There... More

The positives first: - The scones incl jam and cream were quite lovely, smallish but cheap so that was fine. - Tea was nicely presented. - The souvenier & book selection was great and we bought quite a few things (but not counting this toward the rating as it's not food and drink). However, the negatives: - The guy who... More

Well I never thought I'd eat a scone that was better than the ones my Mum made, but here I did. They were light, huge and fresh and Michael's raspberry jam made them even better. The coffee was excellent too after our cold tri to the top of the nut. The young 2nd year pastry chef who made those scones... More

Fire was lit and the vibe was positive and welcoming and not a spare seat available! The duck did not dissapoint and i had a seafood pasta dish... More

Staff are very friendly and make the best hot drinks on the coast. Michael's fish and chips are lovely as the batter on the fish is well cooked, crisp and not too thick. I go here weekly when it is open.

Right at the base of the Nut, great to grab some brekky before heading up. Also great to catch some warmth by the fireplace after coming back down.
