Really good quality bakery with range of pasties, pies, breads, rolls, etc - all you need for a good picnic. There are benches outside if it's sunny. The cafe itself is a bit bland and looked relatively pricey.

As we popped in here on a cold wet day we had the cafe to ourselves, so service was quick. It was also very friendly. We were only here for a snack and our generous pot of tea was nice, as were the tea cakes and cheese scones, which were all baked in-house. The bakery is in a nice position... More

This is a little cafe attached to the village bakery. Simple fare but just right for a stop for morning coffee or afternoon tea. Very happy to recommend.

Oh dear what is happening here? The bakery and its goods were excellent but the cafe is being run in a very odd way. Service was pleasant but exceedingly slow despite the place being deserted. The walls were festooned with mis-spelt handwritten notices about a "buffet" apparently in a room above the cafe, but unless you ascended the steep steps... More

I have visited before and was looking forward to another visit, the café was very busy and staff didn't come to take our order - I went in search of someone and the lady was harassed, we said we would like the buffet and she asked if we wanted soup, I had to go and check with the rest of... More

When we called at around midday the we were told the tearoom was full, but we could opt to go upstairs and help ourselves to a buffet style meal if we wished. We declined and asked if we could sit outside as there was a vacant table. The waitress said that was fine and she would come out for our... More

Do not miss this quirky place. Is it a bakery- is it a cafe- what's upstairs? This multifaceted place is a mouthwatering bakery which tries to be all things to all people. Downstairs is a cafe serving hot food then upstairs is a room of two tables offering an all you can eat cold buffet accompanied by a mug of... More
