This is good value for money and very quirky. Sells antiques as well as great cake and lunches. It's staff are very friendly and portions generous. We had 2 teas and asked for a scone which arrived just like a cream tea! For that alone we will return! The cost was not for a cream tea. Excellent. Downstairs are large... More

I visited again recently and had an all day breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the bacon. I can't wait for my next visit.

I have never experienced lunch as bad as I did at this place! I chose BLT sandwich from what looked like a great selection. When it arrived the bacon was disgusting I am unsure it was even bacon and had been microwaved to warm through. When I complained the waitress simply replied 'well that's the bacon we serve here' disgraceful.... More

Firstly the staff seemed friendly, however when it came to the mothers day tea they must have used the cheapest of ingredients for I would say 14 finger sandwiches, about 12 small cakes and 8 scones no bigger than an inch the smallest 2 dishes of cream and 2 of jam, Bearing in mind there were 5 adults and 1...

We had afternoon tea in the downstairs room for my mum's 50th birthday party and it was wonderful. The decor is perfect - lots of antique style bits for sale that really suit the theme of the place. The well downstairs in a good attraction in itself! Service was great, even though there were around 22 of us. Can't wait... More

Coffee shop serving a variety of small meals/sandwiches. Perfect for a brunch or lunch. My personal favourite is the chicken and bacon toasted sandwich made with freshly cut bread. They serve homemade soup and quiches and lots of tasty specials. It's a great little place, full of antiques that you can purchase. Downstairs there is a well and lots more... More

Lovely place for a good breakfast or a cuppa and slice of cake. Light lunches are also available. Downstairs are more tables and a selection of antiques and vintage items for sale in this slightly quirky but high quality café.

We have passed this corner cafe on many occasions and this time had a chance to pop in. The car park opposite is convenient. The service was efficient and friendly and the chocolate and coffee very good. The sandwiches were fine but the chilli sauce in one had a strange taste. The antiques on the lower floor were interesting too... More
