Don’t try the coffee cake here. It’s just doughy stodge with a few traces of grated carrot in it - a muffin (in a muffin case) made with prepared mix I suspect.

Really good coffee, full flavour and large cups. Good selection of food, we opted for a cake, nothing better than an afternoon coffee and cake fix

Visited today and had one of the special meals. Batter was a bit greasy but fish was nicely cooked. Chips were good. Tartar sauce poor and needs capers added. Great idea to have free water station. Loved that. Toilets kept clean and staff very friendly...More
