As soon as you enter the cafe, the aromas of coffee beans entice you to find your table and study the menu. Service is excellent by the very friendly staff. Drinks are served in proper china, tea is made with leaves, coffee in cafetieres ... all done properly .... and from Northern Tea Merchants wide range of types of tea... More

I used to come here a lot for breakfast before I moved away from the UK. Now that I am back it is good to see that the quality is still there! Excellent teas and coffee (which is one of the largest selections I've seen) My normal breakfast here is a bacon sandwich followed by a toasted teacake. Would highly... More

It's a while since we were here and the difference from last time is obvious. Lovely welcome, pleasant and unrushed service. Just had coffee and a cheese scone - both excellent. They don't seem to have a specific web presence to give any detail about their excellent cafe which is a shame.

Had been past the place a couple of times before we actually called in for some lunch, enroute to relatives. Firstly asked if we needed to book as most of the tables had reserved signs on them but they said we could have a table that had been reserved for 1 o'clock , it was around 12:00. The choice of...

I popped in this bonny place for a quick bite to eat with a friend..it turned into a lovely lazy lunchtime treat. The staff were so attentive and knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. The food and cake selection were so good but what makes this gem different is the attention to detail. From the crisp white tablecloths to... More

We had researched where to have lunch during a shopping trip and this cafe seemed perfect. On arrival one waitress was deep in conversation with another customer and ignored our party of three adults and a baby standing and waiting for assistance.
