A very pleasant venue for very nice food and drinks. Lovely staff, very welcoming and helpful. A few other outlets very close by so something to look at too. Will certainly visit again.

We have visited the cafe here a few times and like it very much. We live in Sheffield and it is worth the trip down for lunch. Lovely setting, superb food. Pay them a visit, I’m sure, like us, you’ll be delighted.

On our visit, there were only some of the shops open, but the main shop was very well stocked and had something to interest all of our age groups; teenage, young man, and older people. The café was extremely busy, but they served quickly and...More
