Had the homemade stilton and leek quiche with coleslaw and salad. It was sublime! All the food looked really good and we might nip back for an ice cream today :)

Thank you.Glad you liked the cakes. Really sorry you had a long wait. I'm afraid it gets quite busy sometimes, specially in the holidays. Shame you didn't come today - it was quiet all day long!

The best ice cream in the area! I especially love the nutty one... I think it’s squirrel? Friendly and cheerful staff.

Hello, no I'm afraid we're only open Saturdays, Sundays and then everyday during school holidays. So I'm sorry we won't be open next Friday.
