Delightful. The gravitational stability of the menus could be improved but other than that, we had a lovely half hour or so in this establishment. 200 characters is more than you'd think. Turns out you need a few more words.

Excellent quality and very good portions. Great value for money. Friendly service and really clean. Nice 'retro' atmosphere without being old-fashioned. We would definitely go back and hope to actually stay there next time.

Sweet little cafe with very friendly staff. Food was excellent, jacket potatoes are big portions and ham sandwich made with gammon. Extremely great value for money. Had the chocolate cake with was lovely, only slightly sickly due to the large portion, but so nice I couldn't waste. Would certainly visit again
