Stopped for a cuppa on a whim with my dad whilst in the Craft Village and have been back a few times since. Very quaint, friendly staff and the soup is lovely.

Such a nice tea rooms with a huge choice of food and drink. As a vegetarian it’s often difficult to find something in a small cafe but there was a great choice. Lovely cakes and coffee too.

We received excellent customer service here when we popped by for breakfast on the recommendation of a local. It took some seeking out but was really worth it. They served us really creamy hot chocolate, perfectly cooked paninis (I'd recommend the one with mozzarella, chargrilled...peppers, courgettes and rocket) and a lovely Irish breakfast. They only accept cash - no cards. The window provides a postcard-perfect viewMore

We had a lovely lunch here and as the weather was lovely we were able to sit outside. The staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed one of the days specials which was Chicken Bacon and Avocado salad. Very relaxed atmosphere and appeared to be...a very busy place. We would definitely recommend and would hope to return soonMore
