Excellent lunch, good variety of food and good service. The Aston pottery is very nice for special gifts as rather expensive. I have several mugs that has been given to me and my husband by my family for Christmas and birthdays.

Not in the shop and cafe, however there is seating outside where I am sure a dog would be acceptable to sit with you if you were having food and drink from the cafe.
