Been here quite a few times and always warmly welcomed! Great coffee, homemade cakes and snacks! Love the Welsh Rarebit and the jacket potatoes. Dog friendly with treats for the dogs.

What a perfect little cafe for a bite to eat. Reasonably priced for the great quality food. We had delicious sandwiches which the gentleman was very happy to adapt to our needs. Excellent service with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Would highly recommend this cafe!
