Good all round tea shop. Serving full meals or snacks and cakes always good. Never had a complaint. Home made soup and a roll is a must.

Went here for a quick lunch to catch up with friends. The cafe is clean and the food good. Service was a bit slow but they were busy.

This is a plain, unpretentious, traditional cafe. The decor is refreshingly simple and a mile away from the plethora of vintage tea rooms that seem to be sprouting up everywhere these days. Don't get me wrong - I enjoy using twee tea rooms when the mood takes me, but most of the time I prefer a good traditional British caff.

The menu here is also traditional cafe fare, and in addition to the ubiquitous "all day breakfast", they have a good range of main meals and hot snacks as well sandwiches, cakes etc. Most importantly for this part of the country, they also have the regional staples of assorted pies with peas and gravy! That's what I came in for and it was excellent.

Service was friendly and efficient and the prices most reasonable.
I'd certainly come again.
