Lovely relaxed Father's Day meal. Our food was tasty, piping hot and plentiful. Waitresses were lovely but could have been more attentive during the meal (for example by asking if we would like more drinks). Excellent facilities for children.

A lovely cafe with good service and excellent food. I recommend you book as we have been disappointed on several occasions because they are fully booked, or have a large group and "cannot offer any hot food" to anybody else. Frustrating and disappointing, but if...More

We stopped here for a coffee and cake on a Saturday afternoon. It was really lovely. A little expensive but that being said you receive a rather large slice of tasty homemade cake which is well worth the money. We tried the strawberry and lemon...More
