This was an excellent place. Cheese scones with a live of cheese and chutney with coffee were served by the delightful host who made us feel very welcome and valued. We sat outside opposite the church watching the world go by. Highly recommended indeed.

Great stop once you’ve visited the fairy steps. Friendly service and lovely homemade cakes. Lovely to sit outside and hear the church bells ring. Banana bread and brownies were delicious

Yes I do eat out a lot especially cafés. I only give honest reviews sometimes too honest . Called in on the off chance the weather would stay clement . It's a café we have visited before with excellent food. Now offering takeaway. As usual...we must support them. This time roast beef sandwich and turkey and cranberry sandwich. Presented in takeaway box . Good fresh bread , very fresh salad with cous cous. Followed by( I know I shouldn't have ) delicious fruit strudel . Coffee and tea were very good. Luckily it stayed fine so we had a very pleasant lunch in the church yard watching the swallows . Highly recommended this café 😁More

For coffee and cake to go sit on a bench somewhere. Only open 10-1400. But that may just be the tea serving bit Great selection Little gem of a local place

Family run and marvellous home cooked food. Menu differs daily and the cakes can be taken home. Only small place so booking is best, but not necessary. Ideal for walkers and bikers. Car parking a bit problematic, but the food makes it all worth the...effort of park and a little walk.More

Excellent food, all fresh, home made soup of the day and good selection of sandwiches and paninis which were very fresh and tasty. The cakes are to die for. Would definitely recommend

This is my absolute favourite place. I have to say I’ve been turned away more times than I’ve got in but that just makes me want it more! It’s very small but charming, warm & cosy. Of course I should ring ahead to book but...my phone never has a signal so I just turn up. They do a particular raspberry cake whose name I can’t remember but it is gorgeous, moist & flavoursome but not too sweet. Even my husband was impressed & cute little cafes are his cup of tea really cos he’s a big guy. I sincerely hope they can ride out the current awful situation & look forward to tip toeing up your stairs to see if you’ve got a small table just for me.More
