I met up here with friends for coffee and cake. The staff were friendly and the service was good. There were plenty of options and the food looked and tasted good. Nice surroundings and good opportunity to combine it with a walk

You can take dogs and children her, with entertainment for them such as a large adventure play ground, with slides and swings. There is inside seating but prices are quite high.
