This is a lovely coffee shop/bar that we visited on a wet and dismal day, at the end of September. The cheerful staff made a dull day brighter and the coffee was great too. Daisy, our labradoodle, made welcome too.

This restaurant can be found at the top of the town, just round the corner from the main street. The staff there are very pleasant, they have a nice menu which caters for all tastes & everything is reasonably priced.

Went today for lunch, haven't stopped being sick since!! Had a cooked breakfast- never again!! Also the waiter was very abrupt turning people away and not making the effort for families with children- turning away lots of business.More
