What a lovely, friendly place! Came here nearly every day, even in the rain and it was always a good visit! Whether you want hot food, cream teas or alcohol, it’s all great here. Highly recommended! Can’t wait to come back and visit again.

Brilliant place to eat. I had a pot of tea and scones for one. Healthy portions and was able to sit for an hour and enjoy the view around me. Lovely service and very friendly.
