Stopped here as we were starving and found this place by accident. Had a lovely home made quiche with salad as I didn't want anything too heavy. It was gorgeous, my husband had a Steak with chips and we both polished our meals off with several mugs of lovely tea. Would definitely recommend this place and will remember the location...

The lady at the counter welcomed us and she took our order at the table. Welsh Rarebit came with delicious salad including olives, beetroot and vinaigrette. Finished with great tea and coffee. Service great from start to finish.

Stopped here for lunch on way to a hostel for a walking weekend with friends. I hadn't been well and fancied a light lunch. Very impressed with home made soup and rolls. Just £4 each. Definitely stop here again if passing.

Perfect spot for a stop. Great service, friendly and helpful staff. Seating inside and outside (if weather permits). Parking onsite for patrons. Can be a bit noisy on a Sunday sitting outside with multiple motorcycle and car enthusiasts driving past and using the intersection - but also interesting to see the vehicles.

Amazing place. Friendly and welcoming. The food is out of this world. I have been here several times, and can honeslty say that this is the best cafe in the area. Be it breakfast, lunch, tea or just a coffee and cake. I strongly recommend if your passing pop in you'll love it xxx
