Very good and thoroughly enjoyed our lunch, Soups were superb and homemade - with a lot of choice. Food was good and the service excellent - for vegetarians and vegans + dog friendly. Would definitely go back.

Couldn’t recommend this place more, lovely owners and accomidating of Dogs & Coeliacs. “The best Gluten after Scones” as said by our party and they even added some little doggy busicuts so our pup wasn’t left out. Excellent find, worth the visit!

Saw the dogs welcome sign so thought we’d pop in ( too cold to sit outside with the kids and dog). Very welcoming place, cosy , warm and well priced. Nice variety of food on the menu and the decor was very quirky yet cosy....More
