A hidden gem. A huge selection of delicious food, indoor and outdoor eating and a great playground for the kids. Very helpful staff. Quirky decorations outside plus two friendly pigs behind a fence!

We were really impressed with this cute clean well stocked cafe. Really lovely setting with a children's play area out the back and a lovely buzz. Will definitely stop in next time we are going past

Lovely staff who are fast with the food and coffee is what you need when you are travelling. This cafe does it well. There are indoor and outdoor spaces for big and small groups and the outside spaces are surrounded by well thought out gardens...More

Good honest food at reasonable prices. Very clean and tidy. Just a shame that the three of us got our food at different times and it was not busy.
