Healthy lunch options and irresistible cake in a gothic church. This is a self-service place and there are tables on two floors.

Unusual location in a church. Don't let that put you off. It's a decent size and has great food and tea.on a very busy Saturday even mid afternoon it was possible to find an empty table and queue for not too long. Gray place. Recommend.

We called in for coffee and scones - delicious! The meals looked excellent, and after 3pm are offered at half price whilst they remain, which would be great value. A great place to relax away from the crowds.
