Very friendly staff - good toasties with generous side salad and excellent coffee. The only minus point is that this is a rather chilly cafe, so make sure you're wearing plenty of layers on a cold day.

Opposite tescos is where you find this lovely cafe. The food is made to order and a selection of freshly baked cakes too. We really enjoyed it so we came twice. If you have young children then a visit to go bananas soft play upstairs is worth it.

Here we have a local little cafe owned and run by local people. The owner is very friendly and the staff off are just lovely. The food is simple but excellent, baked potatoes, panini , toasties etc and delivered with a smile and some chat. The Bridge serves a great variety of teas and coffees and tables can be reserved....
