I've come here often over the past few years. It's never disappointed me. Huge boiling pot of tea, massive slices of cake. The sandwiches are fabulous. Never scrimp on the fillings, with a big salad and crisps. And all for a good cause....Well done. Really is a great little place.

The menu is very good for a lunchtime snack type place.Everything we ordered, from home-made soup to... More

Stopped in for lunch with my parents, husband and 3 year old after reading the reviews on trip advisor. Lovely cosy little cafe with a few tables and some comfy chairs if you want to pop in for a coffee and cake. We had lunch (and cake). Paninis and sandwiches were yummy. Mine was over flowing with Brie. Served with... More
