We were out exploring the area, saw the cafe sign and called in for a drink. Big mistake.

I had a tea which was ok and a scone which was so dry it... More

Stopped for Lunch here after visiting the Shop next door and was pleasantly surprised. Two Ladies behind the counter very friendly and welcoming. Great Panini and chips and a lovely salad to accompany it. a Cup of decent coffee and we left. Would definitely visit again. Seems very popular with the Local which is always a good sign.

So annoyed,how can a cafe not make a quality poached egg? It is frustrating to pay for such low quality food and production. Note: I did not... More

Having ordered two Paninis, one with salad and a pot of tea for two. Had such a wait that two customers finished their full fry-ups before paninis had been started to be cooked. Friends of the cook had arrived after we had finished our pot of tea and had been served. When we asked when paninis were coming, told about... More
