Visited here half way round our circuit! I had soup and cheese scone - delicious. My husband had a moo steak pie and proclaimed it was the best pie he has ever eaten! It’s a quaint little building and the staff are friendly and welcoming!

A small, cosy little café. Very friendly staff producing real home made food, the experience is genuinely like visiting someone's home. For a real treat ask for the cheese and herb scones!
