I have been going to the T Pot cafe for a long time and always have enjoyed their home made food. I would recommend them to anyone wanting a delicious and reasonable meal or snack.

Had spotted this cafe earlier in our stay, without time to visit. Happily nipped in today. Sheepskins, background music, cosy feeling and atmosphere. Cake display was a treat for the eyes, a warm welcome from happy staff! 😁 Lovely job. Would return and definitely recommend.

The menu is quite limited and can be viewed online. Whenever I have asked, the staff are happy to adapt the menu to suit.
