This place and people who run it are wonderful With so much other anonymous corporate cafes around its so refreshing to still have great local businesses like this. The veggie bomb (even for meat eaters) is great and it's dog friendly too and so Bonnie approves greatly Woof woof.

I come here regularly for lunch, and each time I have a different choice of specials with great, fresh ingredients. I can even tailor the menu to what I fancy. Really good coffee too. Highly recommended.

we did a bike ride in the area and stopped here for lunch. I had baked potato with bacon, brie and cranberry jelly--very nice and tasty and generous portion, but potato cd have been more cooked, it was a bit hard. Husband had welsh rarebit which he said was excellent.

This was our second time visiting- we should've remembered our first trip here involving rude staff and inedible cheese and pickle toastie, but alas we gave it another go....

Called in for coffee with a friend on Sunday - 2 coffees and 2 biscuits and the bill was nearly £9 - better value in other places. Also, a bit picky, but I prefer coffee from a cup rather than a large mug.

Been here quite a few times and always warmly welcomed! Great coffee, homemade cakes and snacks! Love the Welsh Rarebit and the jacket potatoes. Dog friendly with treats for the dogs.

What a perfect little cafe for a bite to eat. Reasonably priced for the great quality food. We had delicious sandwiches which the gentleman was very happy to adapt to our needs. Excellent service with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Would highly recommend this cafe!

Loved the food, Welsh rabbit with Stilton cheese and pear. Photo tell you of the ambience of the place. Coffee fresh from bean and taste out of this world.
