Another tasty lunch here-soups,toasties quiche, puddings and cakes all to be highly recommended. The service is friendly and efficient and the prices are reasonable given the overall quality. Museum display had changed from last time- visit this interesting local treasure.

Easy access directly off the main road, plenty of parking, secure and safe stroll to the cafe. Historic decor and the chance to look around the exhibits before or after tea, coffee or lunch. Very reasonable price, all home produced products.
