Tea and fancy coffee was needed on this snowy day and The Watermill was the best place to go for it. Lovely atmosphere and delicious baked goods ... we will be back!

We had heard a lot about this place and were keen to visit. We weren't disappointed. The only difficulty we had was finding somewhere to sit: it's not a huge cafe area and on our first visit, it took a while to find somewhere to...More

This is my 4th visit. From my first visit, I loved it. I had no idea it had been voted the best independent bookshop. It deserves its title.
