A very nice cafe & restaurant hidden at the back of the book shop. Very reasonable prices, a good selection of food & very tasty. My only criticism is that the salad could do with a dressing as it's a little dry without.

Met my friend Barbara for a coffee and cake. Had toasted tea cakes, which had plenty of butter - makes a nice change. Coffee was lovely as well. Ambience was charming tucked back behind the bookshop. An excellent place to meet friends.
