Once again this place excels at welcoming a big group of cyclists. Noone does it better, and it makes such a change to a lot of the surly, begrudging places the Wellington Wheelers go to. 10/10 every time. Well done!

Visited this cafe for coffee only but we regret it when we saw the size of the all day Full English Breakfast? The cafe is situated at the rear of a rather large shop selling newspapers, magazines, stationary and all types of food and drink. A lovely shop to browse the have you full English!!

I went into the Tantivy to buy my husband a few select beers and a present for his birthday, I had my little boy with me so one hand was holding him! The boy behind the counter (I believe was the owners son) honestly couldn't have been any more helpful. He offered his help straight away, went and got a... More

We stopped at Tantivy on the way back from our walk. The service was fab and so was the coffee and wafer. I had an onion design on the top of my coffee. We sat outside as we had a dog with us. I would definitely recommend this coffee shop to friends.

This is a dog friendly cafe which is great news and open on Sundays which is also good. However, the tables were sticky and the upper room was a bit disorganised. Not really enough space to sit comfortably without knocking the tables. The coffee was good and served with a lovely little wafer biscuit. Earl grey is charged at speciality... More

Enjoyed a delicious cream tea here after a long walk through the woods. The scones were served warm and with really generous amounts of clotted cream and jam. We sat in the pleasant court yard on a crisp autumn day but there was adequate indoor seating which allowed dogs.

This shop cafe has many facets. There are special bottles of drinks, lots of local bottled ales, plus two local gins that I could see. To the rear was a lovely cafe/bistro style area the menu looked quite tempting, panninis etc. An large area for gifts, cards local history books, and foodie bits. Lots of local preserves, jams and honey.... More
