Excellent coffee and cakes on a circular whirl from Cromford. Sunny situation with covered eating outside available if required. Lunches catered for. Lots of table space and large selection of cakes and snacks as well as meals.

Nice atmosphere, great scones and cake, just what we needed after a day walking. The walnut and stilton scone was the highlight.
