We visited whilst on a glass course. When we arrived at 12:30, the place was already full, so we asked if we could sit upstairs, only to be told by the grumpy lady (owner?) that that area was closed. As we left, people were shown upstairs - so it obviously was open.

I must say that the food was delicious. The other staff were slightly off and not really interested in serving us. We asked for a dessert to take out and it was suggested to collect after the glass course had finished. When we returned the staff were very off with us and made us feel very unwelcome. The grumpy lady came to our table and told us the cafe was closed. I explained that I had paid for a dessert already and asked if I could eat it there. She told us that no desserts were being served and we could have some cake. It was all quite awkward and totally unnecessary. We left quickly after we had finished our drinks.

Such as shame as we are local and would recommend this place to family and friends. I would say if you can get past the grumpy lady and are not fussed about good customer service, then you will like the food.

It's the worse place I have been too for along time.
The tables and chairs all very cramped ,food really bad the wedges they served ,don't know how they had the cheek to put them out they were cold and limp couldn't eat them.
The salads were huge but our table left most of them didn't look very appetising.
Certainly won't be back .

Visited the cafe when passing through the area. The sandwiches that my boyfriend and i ordered were nice but the wedges tasted limp. We felt crammed in and the staff weren't attentive or friendly- maybe it was just a bad day?

Came here for a quick lunch. Food was really tasty and the salad was huge and so fresh. Only criticism is the staff weren't particularly friendly, apart from one young man who was waiting on. The other staff didn't seem interested or want to smile at customers which is a shame. Would come back though.
