Scrumptious Home Cooked Meal!
03 Dec 2011
A wonderfully rustic atmosphere is guaranteed in all my visits to this intimate cafe. A refreshing selection of real ales, wines smoothies and lassis were available (as were mulled wine in November-December). Truly a little piece of heaven for veggies and non-veggies alike. Dishes were all flavoured well, adequate portions and all tasted delicious.
Loved the falafel!
Service times are inconsistent due to staffing but it may take over an hour on weekends (evenings). The total price for three of us for a two-course evening meal was approx. £40, which I feel is rather good value for money.

A Pleasant Discovery!

Having lived in this region for a quite a while, there are a few hidden gems that one may occasionally overlook. Admittedly, this lovely cafe is not considered in a central location but was able to stumble upon this by food blogs and online reviews. We finally made our first visit on a Saturday evening- there were regulars as well as foodies in a relaxed scene.
Service was cheerful but no experts, very simple decor and Christmas menu was available. Dish portions may vary- I wouldn't consider three pieces of simple 'Xmas tree' sushi in glitter as a sufficient starter compared to my folks, who had a a bowl of soup and generous portions of bread!
The squash and chickpea curry was a delight, perfectly spiced and compensated for the disappointing starter. Other mains ordered- the mushroom wellington was crisp, fluffy- the nut roast inside was awesome too!
Delightful meal overall, I hope to visit again for their lunch offerings.
