Staff very friendly and welcoming, dog friendly too. Food order taken at our table and food promptly delivered. It was piping hot and delicious. Why go to the Hive cafe when you drive past this gem.

We had lunch and dinner. Off season, food selection somewhat limited, and served only later in the week. Very well prepared and cost is moderate. Bert well stocked, and carries great gin selection. Open log fire.
