This cafe/restaurant serves interesting, decent meals in a relaxed casual environment. Certainly better than its closest public house rival for a mid morning meal.

Really nice cafe - lovely mill setting with great views. Wide selection of veggie food - all very tasty and not at all mediocre.

This veggie restaurant is like going back in time - Homity Pie and fantastically retro salads. It feels as though it all comes from the Crank's cookbook but is none the worse for that. Well cooked food, pleasant staff, reasonable prices and pretty views - what's not to like?
