I love this place. The staff are always very pleasant and attentive. Myself and my son both had a sandwich, we did intend to have a desert but were too full after our sandwich. Definitely next time.

There are a couple of spaces next to the Bake House and some on road parking. Other than that, there is a large free car park about 2 minute walk away.
