Every Wednesday the cafe offers delicious home made soup and a variety of home baking. The food is always of a high standard, the people who run to cafe do a first class job and the atmosphere is always friendly and relaxing.

Lovely staff and an excellent community project. Lovely coffee, the best in the village. Scones looked amazing but we sadly didn't get to try them this visit. More places like this are needed. Wish we had been around for lunch
