Very friendly. Slow service but plan for food to take 20 minutes. 13 pounds for two inexpensive. Worth having lunch here. If this review is helpful then please indicate so below.

Cute little cafe that is very olde worlde style - old furniture, tea pots etc. Both of us had a lovely pot of tea each and cake. Only improvement to be made - Cake wasn’t homemade and seating was a little cramped.

4 of us headed to this little cafe for a very late lunch after wandering around the castle. It was very quaint with old fashioned little seats with cushions, and proper tea cups and tea pots. The service was great, both waitresses were very friendly....More

Not sure but you will enjoy the food and the banter we had the all day breakfast comes with hot buttered toast and lots of tea with china cups.
