A favourite of mine

This café is a little gem. If you're looking for good food & a country walk this is the place to go. The staff are friendly & the portions are generous. Each time I go back they have more & more vegan options. Last time I had a lentil stew & mashed potatoes. I've never found a place that does vegan mashed potatoes which are as creamy as these ones. For dessert I had a vegan cheese cake. Nom Nom. Take a walk by the river & visit the secret garden where they have apple trees, vegetable plots & tunnels full of growing plants. This place is a must.

Pros: great food, warm friendly staff, fabulous surroundings
Cons: only open until 4.30p.m.
