This premises has undergone several changes in recent years but this cafe is certainly the most welcoming and pleasant business there in that time. The decor is certainly up to date and I would guess the wall paper to be Laura Ashley? The glass covered table top decoration shows care and interest with decorations wall displays are attractive and informative - proudly showing the local supplies to the cafe's provisions. Cakes tempt you at the counter and a wide range of beverages are on offer. The cakes and coffee and delicious! Lunches are reported to be very good too. Loyalty cards are available too. Everything is as clean as you would expect it to be, staff are friendly and brisk with their service. Toilets are remarkable and offer basic necessities that one may need from time to time; the baby change area also provides basic necessities should a parent be 'caught out' with baby requirements. Seating is plentiful but the cafe does get very busy. Pleasingly, this cafe is used by a wide range of ages; couples having huge cooked breakfasts alongside mums meeting with babies. Mobility is not a problem for pushchairs - I counted four in there this morning with space not being compromised in the slightest. Wheelchair may be a little trickier. No outside tables could be found, but this cafe is fronted by a narrow pavement which faces directly onto a busy road. A very good visit this morning, I am looking forward to my next trip when I hope to be able to order a round of toast. All good - thank you.
