Lovely environment. Lovely food and staff. Been for years and never been disappointed! Absolutely loved my baked brie and I like that they have teardrop (think thats what theyre called) little pepper dotted in it (not spicy), very tasty and a nice touch.

Small cafe with a flexible breakfast menu. Just what was missing from our Premier Inn. Quality ingredients in fresh bread and very welcoming staff. Recommended.
