This special deli provides a welcome respite from the busyness of the surrounds. Great cakes and teas as well as freshly made light meals and snacks. Browse the interesting shop too for original gifts.

One arrives at the small restaurant having walked through a gift shop area which is attached to a nursery - you can hardly believe that this is a busy residential area. There are a couple of tables and chairs outside where parents could watch their...More
