Took 2 teas to carry out and drink in the car. Extortionate for a cup of hot water, paper cup and tea bag. Not doing a return visit. Will take flask next time.

Coffee is delightful and cakes are tasty. Great setting for friendly catch ups whilst taking in the views

Loved the views so decided to try the cafe. My latte was dreadful, two sips and I couldn't drink any more - awful. The scone was microwaved so much it was no longer edible. Definitely won't be back. Dreadful experience.
