We enjoyed a lovely coffee/hot chocolate here, lovely atmosphere with helpful staff. It's not just a coffee shop and interesting shop too it beats the soulless coffee shop next to car park so make sure you walk up into centre to find this place!

Called in here at 2:50 pm, to be told nothing left except cake scones or crumpets, so i can't comment on their food, only the ignorant person behind the counter. Won't try again.
