Amazing homemade cake, freshly made that morning. Good coffee and great breakfast. Nice, friendly staff. We went twice over our weekend stay at Sandy Balls.

A very cosy cafe with friendly staff. The food was great - especially the jacket potatoes. Look out for the fairy doors - your children will love them.

Quaint, relaxed atmosphere. Good food and excellent service. They even opened up on Sunday a week earlier than planned when we said we'd like to come in on Sunday. How's that for responsiveness to customer requests!

Just came across this while looking around the town. Very quirky building good choice on the menu and a nice children's menu too also little fairy doors for the children to find sweet idea. Has seating inside and outside in a little courtyard area and outside the was a water bowl for the dogs.

I visited here recently with my boyfriend. We stumbled upon it looking for somewhere for lunch, it's hidden away but there is a sign on the street saying "we are open!" so we decided to give it a try - it was so lucky!
