Lovely friendly and helpful staff. Cakes in the cafe are to die for very reasonably priced goods well worth the visit.

One of our first ports of call when we come down for our annual visit. Coffee is great. Plenty of seating of various types, including outside. Food varied and looks good. Staff very helpful on both occasions we have been in this week.
