We came here in the November lockdown and had to wait 30 minutes for a scone to be reheated, despite this being offered by the lady at the till. No reason was given behind the wait whilst the staff chatted in the kitchen, oblivious to...me waiting. I thought it was a one off bad experience but me and my family tried to visit again today and despite signage saying the cafe was open for take away until 4, at 3:30 we were refused service by the lady inside and the door had a closed sign on it. No reason was given. The lady was busy counting money and clearly did not want to serve any customers. Really disappointed by the lack of customer service on both occasions and will not be returning.More

Popped in for a light lunch on the last day before lockdown2, the place was as busy as social distancing would allow but they found space for us, and I’m glad they did. Two paninis later me and my wife were very satisfied. The coffee...was lovely and the staff were so friendly, I only wish I could have fitted in some of the cakes that looked soooo good. We will return when the world becomes normal again.More

Very impressed! Helpful and knowledgeable staff who were so friendly during our visit. There were a good selection of vegan options, not all listed on the menu, and we enjoyed a vegan breakfast and avocado & houmous salad, followed by delicious vegan chocolate cake! A...perfect place to stop and refuel whilst cycling the Bure Valley path. Hope to return when we are next in the area.More

Stopped here on the middle of a long walk, very nice inside, good service and the cream tea we had was easily 10/10. Scone was really nice and the pot of tea was generously sized with plenty for both of us.

We were due in the area and I rang ahead to book a table. Glad I did as I don't think we would have got a table otherwise. We were seated downstairs. I believe upstairs you would get views over the water. Our waitress was...very friendly. The food very nice. Great selection of home made cakes. Would definitely visit again if in the area.More

We visit here every week and enjoyt he coffees and sausage rolls - usually hot out of the oven and very tasty. Good at keeping us socially distanced and sanitised. Ligth and airy venue. We thought the other person in the party had booked but...even though they hadn't the staff still found a table for us without a problemMore

Stopped off with the family for a bit of lunch whilst on a bike ride. Wonderful service, great little menu (I rate the salt beef sandwiches very highly), and a truly lush Victoria sponge cake!!
