True, the interior is a little dated but we enjoyed a tasty soup/sandwich combo and generous helping of macaroni cheese apiece. The service is welcoming and attentive and the home baking lovely. The solid fuel stove is a nice touch! Whoever was complaining about the prices obviously doesn't get out much! Our bill for two, with two glasses of milk,... More

Seems to have gone down hill since our last visit. My husband had shepherds pie, which was bland and watery. The macaroni cheese was OK but nothing special. Service very slow. Chips could have done to be browned more. We have used this place a lot when travelling North, don't think we will be back. Quite expensive for the quality.... More

Lovely wee cafe to stop and have a meal or a cuppa with home baking. A bit pricey for a cafe but to be fair the food and service are faultless. Everything is spotlessly clean and you get service with a smile. Nice wee stove lit all day in the winter which adds to the charm. Tables and chairs outside... More

I'm not sure what the negative reviewers expect from a cafe. It doesn't have fast food, pseudo American staff or fine dining but it was clean and cosy with a fire burning, great on a direct day. The waitress was pleasant, the coffee was good and hot, the toasted sandwiches were well filled and tasty and the home made cakes... More

For various reasons I ended up using this cafe twice in a week. I had reservations because of the negative reviews but came away happy both times. I think a bit of expect ion management might be needed. This is a small, local operation which doesn't pretend to be anything fancy. The decor is a bit dated but it's clean... More

As the title says don't bother, the poor signposting is obviously a bonus to allow you to miss the entrance for this place. My wife and I stopped off here today for lunch, on entering the cafe there were only about 8 customers sitting at 3 separate tables so they were not busy. The couple who entered the cafe just...

We visited here last week and were more that an little dismayed at the price of the food- sure that cafe is cute and in a nice location but the presentation of the food left a lot to be desired.A bacon and sausage roll came just as that-one sausage and one slice of bacon plonked on a plain roll, no...
