Very quaint coffee shop, just off the beaten track - not much seating inside but if you catch the weather right, the seating spreads right outside into the courtyard. Lovely place for a quick coffee or catch-up with friends. Friendly staff and fairly quick service.

It happened to be Lancaster's music weekend and we sat outside the restaurant close to the stage and listened to live music whilst drinking our coffee and eating tasty cakes. It was a restful experience. I can recommend the place to anyone.

Yes. We bake some very special Gluten-free Chocolate Brownies & Lemon Drizzle Cake fresh every day in our Bakery across the road in The Hall, where we also roast the coffee to go with them!
