The Elk was cosy and quiet when I visited, I needed somewhere to stop off for an hour, the waitress was pleasant and the croissant tasty.

Great service, fantastic coffee and amazing food. I had the black pudding and egg, which was perfectly served and an excellent dish. The full English at £9.50 looked amazing but too much for me.

A friend and I were visiting the area on Monday 9th at 1pm and had a fantastic morning at a nearby spa. After being recommended 'The Elk' for great choices, we made our way over the road. The front of the cafe was very busy and noisy and, after noticing a few tables at the back, we asked if we could sit there.

We were met with a very abrupt and rude 'Why?' After explaining that it was because of the noise, the 3 staff members looked bemused and, eventually after standing there looking at us like we were crazy, the rude staff member said 'well, if you want to..' in a very abrupt and rude tone.

The other staff members just ignored us. We then decided to leave the restaurant and received no apology. On the contrary, I turned round and saw the staff members smirking.

We made our way over to another beautiful cafe 'The Library' where we served in a very friendly manner and thoroughly enjoyed our visit!

Cosy warm wooden furniture makes this bar/restaurant very welcoming. Has a small terrace at the front for sunny days. Does brunch from 10-4 as well as a lunch menu. Cakes and coffee too. Brunch menu included the usual Eggs Benedict and Full English but also had some different dishes such as crumbled black pudding and poached eggs or halloumi with spinach and tomato. The food was very good. The coffee worthy of note. If there is nothing you want to eat here then you must be very picky.

The staff were friendly and the food was nice, however lacking quantity. We ordered two of the main dishes, one burger and one schnitzel. Both said they came with chips. Unfortunately there were literally only about 5 chips with each dish, which was quite a let down given the price. We were both still hungry after eating everything so decided to buy a slice each of their large cakes on display. Unfortunately again, we were given the measliest slither of a slice! At a fiver each I was again very disappointed. The staff are a redeeming quality however and the place is fine to go for a few drinks, but wouldn't recommend for food if you are hungry.
