Description: We're just a little family run local cafe We're only small, but if you don't mind sharing a table, there's room for everyone We don't have table service and we don't have paper menus. (our menus are written up on the wall and they change regularly) The kitchen closes at 3pm, but you can still get coffee and cake after this time We are not part of a chain, there is no CEO creaming off the profits. We are just a little cafe doing our best, with the best ingredients we can get our hands on Guardian Top 50 Breakfasts UK 2017 The Times Top 25 2016 Buzzfeed Top 17 Things to Eat Before You Die Good Food Guide 2017 Hardens 2017 “It’s a bit of a squash, but once you’ve got in, you’ll get some excellently prepared local stuff” Now, lower your expectations and come on down!

If you want food that's a little different but full of flavour with a touch of passion then you cannot go wrong with the pig and pastry.

As you enter you see a busy and bussling café and are confronted with an a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. Be warned though this place is popular (for excellent reasons) so you may find yourself sharing a table with a stranger or too. Thankfully most clientele embrace the atmosphere. You can read alone or make a new friend.

On your right are the chalk boards. Four are staples and you should work your way through. The far left changes constantly. Always with a vegetarian options. Be adventurous and go for something different you've never had before. You won't be disappointed.

The cakes are amazing too. Later in the afternoon the food service switches to coffee and cakes and the footfall drops. The staff are always friendly with great cutomer service even with every table occupied and with a queue to the door.

But that's what you'd expect from one of the most popular and best haunts in the city.

Just the best of the best. Amazing food wonderful laid back atmosphere and always a smile behind the counter. The exceedingly unpretentious staff and owners need a medal for putting up with the Crazy brood of regulars of which I count myself lucky to be one. P&P we ❤️ you!

This place gets very busy and deservedly so. Excellent small menu with seasonal cakes on the counter. Happy staff and happy customers. We started coming here as visitors to the city and found it very welcoming . Now that we are resident nearby are pleased to have this as our second home with so many friends met over the table and over the counter.
The cafe also has a charitable side with salads sourced from local nursery run by staff with learning difficulties. The owners themselves hosting and undertaking many charitable events.
