  • Nice little restaurant for lunch and drinks. It was funny that the young trainee was making faults and the staff were very apologetic but we said it's fine. We all have to start somewhere... Parking is on a slope, I thought the campervan was going to tip over when we got in. Museum is really good. I love the secret room they only tell you about when you buy a ticket. Well worth a look :)
  • Some of the best home baking I've enjoyed was here. Table service, Gluten or dairy free home baking available. Good stopping off point whether coming from our heading to the St Margarets/Gills bay ferry
  • Great for a coffee while heading back to the ferry.
  • Excellent cake and Coffee
  • Really interesting museum, definitely worth a visit. Lovely cafĂ© too.
