Quite simply, everything from the warmth of welcome to the Scrambled egg with Salmon was perfect. Well done. I've had a lot worse breakfasts in 4/5* Hotels. Recommendation is to sit upstairs and watch the world go by ... chill!

The staff were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. There is plenty of space in a number of rooms. We just stopped for coffee and cake and they were very good.

Took my mum for a run to Monmouth and had a stroll around town. Stopped off here for lunch break. Very good lunch and service. Can easily recommend. It was very busy on the day which sort of confirms its rating.

Cafes can be good, bad and indifferent, but this is one of the best. We would probably not have come across it but for Trip Advisor, as it is upstairs above a hardware shop, but the slightly hidden location reveals a huge cafe divided into...More

I totally agree with the previous reviewer, that it is very expensive for the portion sizes, if the quality was amazing it would have been a different story, The breakfasts we had were very average, and no imagination for the vegetarian option, just a few...More
