The fabulous little cafe is a great place to have a delicious brunch and catch up with friends. The cakes are so good that you just have to indulge in one of those too..a real treat! A little gem of a place, well done.

Small friendly village cafe. All food is cooked to order and is of an excellent standard. There is also a good range of take away sandwiches and pies. The scotch eggs are the best I have ever tasted!
