Our ambition is to provide a comfortable and relaxing environment for you to enjoy our food and drinks with a friendly service included. Our range of cakes, snacks and cooked lunches are served with your choice of barista coffee, loose leaf teas, soft and alcoholic drinks including wine, bottled beers, spirits and cocktails. We provide table service for all food and drinks served in our bar and dining room. Please pay at the counter at the end of your visit. Our cakes are baked onsite from natural ingredients for that genuine ‘home made’ taste and quality. Breakfast, lunches and snacks are all prepared to order from our selection of regular main menu dishes and our weekly specials menu. Our specials are selected each week to provide greater choice and to benefit from seasonal and locally sourced produce.
Customers seated outside are asked to order at the counter or to visit us inside to make a member of staff aware that they are ready to order and may also be asked to pay in advance especially during busy periods.
Some cakes are bought in to cater for gluten intolerance, but many which are naturally gluten free such as roulade are still made on-site.
Food is served from 9am until 4pm on week days and Saturday. Cakes and other pre-prepared snacks are still available in the late afternoon until close at 5:00pm. Hot and cold drinks including alcoholic drinks are available all day.
Our menu always contains vegetarian options and we can often cater for food intolerances and allergies including dairy and gluten free. Please just ask a member of staff who will check with our chef and kitchen staff and try to meet your needs if possible.
We stock a selection of gifts, kitchen and homewares and original artworks to purchase.
