We dropped in for coffee and scones. We took them outside and enjoyed them while admiring the castle. The scones were so good we went back in for another. Staff were friendly and helpful.

They refused to give us food (such a toasted sandwich) 33 min before closure of the kitchen wich closes at 17h... it looked like they don't really care about their customers, they were just thinking about to go home early. Anyway, that was my experience...More
