A real gem and well worth a visit. Once you step off the high street you could be anywhere. Lovely plants and a tranquil atmosphere with many hidden seating spots. Locally sourced produce as well.

Charming/trendy place, very friendly staff and great food at a decent price. Between the 3 of us we shared a BLT, a tomato soup, honey-glazed ham with egg and chips and a bacon butty: all very filling and delicious! Highly recommend!
