We were looking for a coffee and a sandwich this morning and stumbled on this lovely little cafe. Big choice of coffees and teas, and the server was happy to advise and discribe each one. Coffee was served in a Cafetia, and was enough for two cups each. Freshly made sandwiches were quickly prepared and served with a tasty salad... More

Best meal I've had out for ages. The English breakfast tea was full of flavour and the steak pie was delicious. Quintessential English teashop, very charming.

Visited this quirky & quaint establishment today. Average service. Nice latte, average price. Shame that chairs were uncomfortable. Also saucers and spoons dirty.

Have now visited this little café several times. The owners are both very welcoming and cannot do enough to help. The service is excellent. It is very quirky but that is great as it is so good to visit somewhere so unlike a costa coffee. Hot meals delicious as are the snacks. Huge variety of teas and coffees.

Cute little café with great charm. Had tea, coffee and the 'crumble of the day' with cream, it was great!
