A bit rustic looking but otherwise quite adequate. Must remember next time (and happy to go again) to ask for less spice.

Popped in for a slice of carrot cake and a hot chocolate! Both were tasty and served with a smile. Lots of seating and a wide range of food to choose from.

Our commitment to sustainability and environmental awareness is important to us, and we serve free range chicken, pork and eggs. We recycle everything we can from bottle tops (Kidney Kids Foundation fundraisers), to food waste (pigs, and compost).

So...Welcome...To your place.
