Visited The Gatehouse cafe with my family. As you walk in your hit by the heat and it's the smallest, claustrophobic room crammed with table's and chairs you can barely move.

been here a couple of times. It's very good value for money and the staff pleasant and helpful. Quality of the tea and coffee could be better, I would be happy to pay a little more for it, then perhaps an excellent rating?

Thank jan e
