Welcoming friendly place. Stopped for a coffee. Just very nice. Entrance is through a packed to the brim gift shop. Entrance not accessible to wheelchair users. Just far too much piled up.

Stopped in Llandovery on the way to Pembrokeshire. Checked TripAdvisor for lunch suggestions and decided on this place. Food was lovely, staff were friendly, cafe is nice and clean. There is even a little play den for young children. Really liked the relaxed atmosphere too....More

we enjoyed a super lunch. One had a great quiche ( very generous portion) and the other, pulled beef with salad. Delightful staff and a great place to sit in the atrium especially when sun shining. They also make a lovely cappuccino.

Excellent coffee, tasty home-cooked food with all kinds of dietary requirements catered for (including, what must be, the most delicious home-made crumpets in the world!), charming surroundings, pretty garden seating area, friendly and caring staff ... WOW...More
