Apparently located in a former reading room, this is a quirky little cafe with a surprisingly wide range of cakes and snacks. We received a friendly welcome and enjoyed cakes, drop scones and tea. We'd certainly go back again

We went out for a morning cycle ride and came here for breakfast and had a great bacon toastie, fresh orange and pot of tea. The cafe is a quirky place, in the middle of nowhere and selling various crafts and cards along with the food. The lady who runs the place was very nice to us.

Lovely place for lunch. Loads of choice of meals and snacks. Been here many times over the years. Really enjoyed my hot beef and caramelised red onion bap, loads of salad on the side with a small dish of the best ever home made horse radish sauce. Highly recommended. Friends all had: a generous, succulent beef salad and a fresh... More

I wondered what our hostess was taking us too. It turned out to be a character building with great country food and good coffee. If you are 'gluten free', grain free or need special help it's there at the coffee Tavern. Of course it's quirky, hidden among the trees on a back road, but Andrew the Chef loves his food... More

A quaint little café with good food which is served by a lady who seems to have far too much to do on her own. Although the food was very good it was not very well presented or served.

I was out walking with a group of friends, and we passed by here. One person needed to get back for the school run, so we couldn't stop, but nipped in to ask if we could get our water refilled as it was a hot day, and the lady serving was very obliging. Once back at our cars, we thought... More

This is a charming little place for an informal meal. we have been many times and our grandchildren have loved it especially at Christmas when there is an enormous real tree and fire. sometimes we have been waiting for a while for food but this is usually when they are very busy. It is home cooked and very good. We... More

From the outside it looks as unusual as it is inside. The setting is genuinely eccentric, the service is very friendly and the homemade food of the highest quality. It's a place that you will never forget having visited.
