After having the Bistro recommended we couldn't wait to see for ourselves. Thankfully we had the heads up on where to park as it is not clearly marked especially in the dark! Also no outside lights once you do park up so be careful. Anyway...More

Visited here several times. Nice food at lunchtime ranging from toasted sandwiches, jacket potatoes, ploughman’s platter to a wide selection of cakes & scones. Lovely setting, outdoor seating in summer. A nice little cafe in a lovely location.

Great cafe with a good selection of breakfast, lunchtime and afternoon tea food. There is outside seating and lots of room indoors. Breakfast stops serving at 12 lunchtime. Can get busy and waiting time for food.

Visit regularly, but the way staff treat you is very poor. The manager / owner can come across as rude when challenged but PAYING customers! Prices high, but it’s what you expect. Food can be hit and miss. Like the service!

Four of us had booked for afternoon tea at Butlers and what a lovely treat. The food was excellent and a plentiful supply of both food and coffee. Well worth a visit. Lovely staff could not do enough for us.

As the menu stated I asked the waitress for the gluten free options - she listed a choice of hot meals which sounded good but not on a hot day - just a nice sandwich would be fine. I was also informed that there was...More

My partner and i went today for breakfast. It was cheap quality undercooked and tasteless food. I have had better breakfasts at half the price in transport cafes. The tables were dirty and littered with mucky plates and needed a good wipe. Even the condiments...More
