Found ourselves with an hour to kill and, following a recommendation, decided to try the Maypole Cafe for breakfast. What a treat! The cafe was clean, warm and the staff were very friendly. And the breakfast was really good with a generous pot of tea and good sized cups. Would definitely recommend.
