We don't often get into this area but did so over the Xmas break. It's often busy but we were lucky to get a table. We found counter service fine and staff friendly. Drink quality is excellent. Veggie is not my scene but a wonderful varied selection on offer and lots of cake!!!!! I'd like to see more of this... More

I've been here a couple of times recently and although the food is tasty and portions generous, I can't get over the way customers are treated. Both times we've stood at the counter for some time apparently invisible while staff rush around but never look up. Both times when we have finally been recognised there's been a rather frosty request... More

The Great Oak has become a 'regular' for us whenever we are in town, as they have the best coffees for miles! If we are there around lunch, we will eat without hesitation! The food is tasty and full of flavour, but make sure you get there well before 2pm so as not to be disappointed, as the hot dishes... More

We enjoyed a delicious plate of 8 assorted salads on one plate. This café specializes in vegetarian dishes & was a wonderful place to have lunch. It was busy, quaint, & the staff was very friendly.

We were passing through the village on our summer holidays and stopped here for a bite to eat, after asking for a recommendation at the local wholefood shop. We enjoyed it so much we detoured back two days later to eat here again, I can't really praise higher than that. Very relaxed, friendly staff, lovely food.

The Great Oak Café is a stunning place with old school vegetarian styling - pine tables, artwork on the walls available for sale, a real community feel with local events advertised and fantastic staff. The main options vary daily and are hearty portions. There is always a huge range of salads to mix and match from and smaller items like... More

Primarily a health food eating place with a good variety of dishes available all looked to be tasty and most I understood were home made. It was a busy place too.

There's nowt I can say that's bad about this quirky and lovely cafe. I've been here a few times over the last few months and I love it. The food is cracking, the service splendid and the prices not half bad. Can't recommend highly enough.

The food here is mouth watering. We visited on a busy lunchtime and sat outside in the garden at the back. The alleyway at the side allowed us to bring our dogs through. Large fresh water containers were dotted around the garden. It makes a very tranquil lunch spot. The choice of food and salads is very varied. Great fresh... More
