Went for a lunch, had a roast beef sandwich with trimmings of crisps and salad, and the best coffee and walnut cake with a cup of tea . A thoroughly lovely lunch with great service from our very helpful and nice waitress Paula.

Came here as a surprise with My sister and family. The weather was gorgeous and we sat outside to have afternoon tea. Sandwiches, scones and individual cakes. Perfect! After we browsed through the shelves of gifts and food. Nice day out.
