I can’t speak for the café as such but can certainly recommend the ice cream – not a huge selection but the quality is excellent. Give it a try – we did !

I don't leave bad reviews unless the place deserves it. The sausage with my breakfast was so over cooked I could not cut it. Asked for Brown toast got white. On complaining they said they would inform chef! Great help.
