Thanks for your great review Colin.
I'm really glad you had a great day with and enjoyed our tasty food.
We hope to see you again soon
What a fabulous little place this is! Great as a meeting point or a welcome break in the middle of a good walk! Basic but essential selection from 'home made' shortbread to a bacon panini with a robust choice of coffee and tea.
