Worst cafe experience ever. Unfriendly & rude staff. On arrival tried to order lunch and not allowed to as lunch could only be ordered from 12pm (it was 11.55am). Out of stock of several of the common sandwich fillings (pork, tuna...etc). Felt very unwelcome. During...More

We were lucky enough to get a seat by the window (right next to the owl). Fantastic views. Ordered bacon baguettes which were nice but not great. Lovely little café with a really nice atmosphere which the locals use (always a good sign).

Lovely cream teas over looking the weir. The pot of tea and two scones is plenty enough to share with someone else. Nice big scones with raspberry jam and clotted cream in a narrow cafe which was a little hot and stuffy but very pleasant.

Stopped in for cream tea - tea & scones. Young lady behind the counter was not overly welcoming or communicative. Also took ages to deliver the tea & scones. When no customers she did nothing but play on her phone. We then observed her folding...More

The mocha was 2% coffee, 90% hot chocolate. The americano was thin and tasteless. Apple and almond cake looked delicious but was similarly tasteless. Staff were short-sightedly petty, asking us not to move chairs in order not to block the cramped space, despite the room...More

Window display is great, which encouraged us to stop. However cakes / environment didn't live up to our expectations. In addition the staff were not very welcoming, friendly or overly helpful. While we were there a gentleman fell off a broken chair- it took ages...More
