You must stop and shop then have either tea and a cake or a good lunch. It’s different but good food

A most interesting place and a very friendly team and great service. The building is fascinating as are all the design items in show. The coffee was excellent and will definitely return.

Lovely coffee and location. Very limited menu to soup and cold sandwiches. None of which were inspiring. Expensive also. Food was tasty and well presented. Place was not busy at all however car park was full. Service was a bit hit and miss.

Well I love this place. Our lovely Belgian customers wanted to walk in the Peak District, starting at Hathersage station we walked over Eyam Moor and ended back at the cafe. Authentic Bakewell Pudding and good coffee pleased our guests. Getting served took a while...More
