I love this Café! The coffee is very good, the sandwiches and cake are excellent. Service can be a bit slow, and I had to go and find someone to get condiments, but the quality of food is superb.

Family run and so welcoming. All the food is home-cooked with cakes to die for. Well worth a visit, and an excellent detour from the A361 when travelling.

This is a frequently visited place, where the coffee is excellent and the food very good. It is a place where you can relax in an unhurried atmosphere, scan the papers, enjoy a chat, or just sit and savour your drink.

We found the corn dolly by typing into google places to eat cream tea. It was busy when we arrived but the staff were lovely and quickly sorted out a table for us to eat at. The food was really nice and good value. The special lemon scone went down a treat. Would recommend to all.
