Such a lovely place, really enjoyed the artefacts inside and can’t wait to see it again when it’s fully furnished. The breakfast looked ‘proper’ and the chips were a total winner with the kids.

Tried this cafe this week for hot drinks and saw that they do a superb full English breakfast. The cafe is tiny with only 3 or 4 tables inside, but there is also some outside seating. Basic selection of drinks, although no speciality teas and they were out of hot chocolate. However, it does look good for a brunch or breakfast.

This place is not a guilty treat but a favourite, dont let the looks deceive you. Set in an army tent with a Caravan style main building this place is owned and operated by one of the nicest men I have ever met. The food is honest greasy spoon and big breakfasts like the Lancaster Bomber are as good as they sound. The history and stories, if you ask and enquire, are as big as the meals. Worth spending a bit of time to really have a chat and enjoy some extraordinarily English cafe style food! These guys deserve to succeed but their aim is to feed and make you feel welcome. All good.

I drive past most days and the other day not feeling like making our own lunch my wife and I decided to try it out. We both had bacon rolls and I have to say they were awesome. The bacon was well cooked to order and the rolls were soft and very fresh. Speaking to the owner he informed me that he gets the rolls daily from a local baker in Dymchurch (Marshmallow
Bakery). It’s a bit difficult to park being on the main road but well worth the effort.

Tried this cafe out for the first time on Sunday. What a treat! Sunny morning (not on menu) good choice of breakfast options for us who came out for a traditional full English. We loved the music, the bowl of water brought for our dogs who could sit by our table while we ate. Service was fine by me because I would always rather wait for a freshly cooked breakfast than have one appear in minutes that has been sitting under lights keeping warm. All in all excellent. Can't wait to go back! Might try the burgers for lunch next time.
