Visited Sunday 7th Jan. Very cold day and a very warm welcome. The best carrot cake ever. Only called in for coffee but will definitely be back for some of their gorgeous menu food.

Check their website as it does weddings also and the exhibition changes its opening times upto a week at a time. The cafe has separate opening times and is open to the public more frequent.
