Don't be put off by the small exterior, this is a very good place to eat. In The corner of Swan Courtyard , behind the Main Street. Great for coffee & cake or lunch. Think everything is cooked on the premises.

Delicious home made food, and good service. Even the well filled sandwiches were served with a yummy, salad garnish. (no beef burgers, bangers, mash or beans, etc) The round tables ideal for four people without being on top of each other. There was no canned music, so we could hear what each other was saying.

Served with a choice of hot or cold food, in generous sized portions too! The Sweets look lovely, but I am always full after the Main Course. There is... More

The steak was so tender it melted in your mouth and the vegetables were tenderly cooked and served on the side...beautiful! We went back the last day... More

We've known the owners and followed them from their previous establishement. The choice is selective but gives enough variety - and the quality of everything is excellent.
