Once again this place excels at welcoming a big group of cyclists. Noone does it better, and it makes such a change to a lot of the surly, begrudging places the Wellington Wheelers go to. 10/10 every time. Well done!

Visited this cafe for coffee only but we regret it when we saw the size of the all day Full English Breakfast? The cafe is situated at the rear of a rather large shop selling newspapers, magazines, stationary and all types of food and drink. A lovely shop to browse the have you full English!!
