I popped in whilst I was doing my nc500 route. Great customer service, great tea and coffee. Nothing to complain about, on the contrary - although the place ain't big it has its welcoming spirit. Good job, keep it this way.

This little cafe is a gem; excellent light lunch food, lovely cakes with friendly staff/owners. Not many tables but definitely worth the wait if none are available when you visit. I would recommend this cafe to family and friends.

My husband, myself and our two dogs stopped for lunch at Bridge Cottage Cafe last week and it was amazing. The home made bread, locally sourced salad, home-made tortilla, latte and apple cake were all fabulous. I wish I lived nearer, I'd be there all...More

Really fresh ingredients and home-baked rolls makes for a great lunch. Smoked salmon sandwiches are fantastic. Our only gripe is that they charge the full amount for takeaways, when they should seriously consider a separate takeaway menu. This should be significantly cheaper as you are...More
