We met some friends for a mid-morning coffee, scones and jam in this nice airy place. Would have liked to have given it a go for lunch - maybe next time!

Definitely open for reservations on Sundays. You will find it quite different from the last one which burned down. Less woodsy and more clean and bright ambience, and everything energy-efficient.You will still love it!
