Not only is the food excellent, but the art work in the shop is outstanding. The coffee was good - I had a cafetier.

You can rely on excellent scones, great coffee and cold drinks, an excellent variety of dishes of the day and superb ice cream. A great village cafe rounded off by being in a community arts centre.

Quite friendly service and with a decent selection of traybakes. Very good pot of tea but scones were very dry. Tables was a bit sticky though it had been wiped. Prices average. It's okay but could be much better.

A lovely place to stop for tea and a piece of cake, the studios stock a large collection of home made gifts and jewellery from local artists and there is a regular exhibition.
