A relaxing cafe on the high street, we stopped for mid-morning coffee and toasted teacakes. The owner was ill and we received apologies from the friendly staff that the menu was limited. Teacakes were possible but they only had one left so I settled for a cheese scone, and was well pleased that I did. Possibly the best cheese scone... More

Wanted a nice, quiet cafe for a light lunch - and was delighted to stumble across David's Cafe. The food was personally cooked by the proprietor, David, and served by a lovely lady, Anne - one of the family team that run the Cafe. Homemade Smoked Haddock fish cakes, french fries and petite pois were perfect - and under £6.... More

We had lunch here yesterday in a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Tea and fruit juices to start followed by the most amazing Medallions of fillet steak with mushrooms & tomatoes on ciabatta bread. My partner had the Escalope of chicken fillet with a salad and fries (both dishes were cooked to perfection). The best lunch time experience we have had in... More

Had lunch here today after hearing from my sister what wonderful food David serves. We ordered coffee (which was best I've tasted!!) - and the sliced fillet steak on ciabatta with cherry tomatoes and mushrooms. I can honestly say it was the most amazing meal! Extremely reasonably priced at just over £8. It was soooo nice....we ordered it again rather... More

An appealing deli/cafe where the customer is inclined and encouraged to linger for long thanks to a generous availability of daily newspapers and an interesting selection of books. However, the lingering can be longer than intended. On the day I visited with two friends it took – wait for it, wait a very long time – a whole hour from... More

I use David's coffee shop regularly and I can only say try it for yourself. If you are a good coffee lover you will not be disappointed by the product, the atmosphere and the wonderful staff. On Saturday eight of us booked a table for dinner and entertainment. The food was superb; try the fillet steak but go back again... More
