Good selection of sandwiches and panenis, but no hot food these days. The sandwiches were good quality and a good variety of fillings. A pleasant relaxed atmosphere on a sunny day to sit out and watch the children in the water fountain or the courtyard...More

Yes in the woods, have to be careful as lots of cyclists around on the harbour side board walks though. Lovely walled garden, sheltered for day time use for all and a courtyard with cafe.
