Great to see the place up and running as such a fabulous cafe. Lovely coffee and cake. The breakfasts look amazing, so will bring hubby back to try soon. Great atmosphere. Someone has worked hard to make the place really welcoming and friendly. See you again very soon.

Really nice food, great atmosphere. Feels like an old station so a bit shabby, but you're welcome with muddy boots and dogs, I even saw a dog menu. Right on the Tarka trail which is really pretty and tarmacked too. I had the venison are with red cabbage and horseradish sauce. Not vast quantities like some of the offerings, but the red cabbage/ horseradish combination was to die for.

A disappointing experience today. Received no response to our attempts to reserve a table, and today the service was appallingly slow. They simply need to employ more staff to ensure food is served within an hour of being ordered.I love this place, but the service was not good enough this week.

We came yesterday for a roast, there was 10 of us and the staff were great and did a big table up for us. The roast was delicious and service was brilliant as always. Thank you for accommodating a noisy bunch of kids (and adults) we really appreciate it! 😊
