We come here a lot and particularly enjoy the breakfasts. Also do a great range of cakes and have gluten free selection too. Gets busy as a local favourite as the garden centre is super too.

Sorry, do not know exact amount ~ my wife and I eat there nearly every week and certainly notice several people having afternoon tea from lunchtime onwards. Wonderful cakes and sandwiches and super staff.
