Called at lunchtime. Lovely interior with real fire. Food bland and disappointing. Soup bland and Victoria sandwich cake tasteless and didn't seem very fresh. Coffee about which there was a lot written was not hot. Sorry, but raise the bar.

We had a very enjoyable lunch sitting outside this café. The food was very good and there was plenty of space inside to sit on wet or cold days. IT is also a bakery with some very tempting cakes and biscuits!

Lovely spot for a coffee and allow some time to relax after the many beautiful walks in the area. I would also highly recommend the scones.. Really nice place overall.
