Lovely cafe restaurant with daily specials and good selection of standards. Generous helping of smoked salmon in ciabatta with delicious herby salad (not a lettuce leaf in sight) and a few crisps - just under £6. The day's specials on the door so you can see before you walk in. Also tempting cakes. So light meals, delicious naughties, Light, bright ambience, good service and cups, saucers, hearts, trinkets to make lovely presents.

In this beautiful tranquil village up near the church. The fresh food is worthy of the surroundings. A well stocked deli tops things off. A quirky wine store is nearby.

Went for lunch today and very disappointed as was very good in the past. Service slow although lots of staff around who couldn't be bothered to do anything.
Had the sharing platter which we felt was rather sparse. Only one slice of ham between us and unbelievably one cherry tomato cut into 3 between us! We saw a platter come out as a single serving and it looked approx the same size as ours.
We decided after being on a diet for 6 weeks to have a dessert. The ice cream we wanted they didn't have and then 5 minutes later they realised the sticky toffee pudding we ordered was also out of stock! Does no one do any stock control.
A real let down.

What's more to say ? So many unusual things on all the shelves, it not only an eating experience, it's also a retail food & drink therapy experience.
Recommend the home made fruit flavour spirits, below all the gins on the rear shelf.
