Buggies - We pride ourselves on being a family friendly cafe. When planning your visit with little ones, please bear in mind however, that the we are limited for space inside the cafe so it would be much appreciated if buggies could either be left at home or parked in the cafe garden. We do have a covered area with outdoor heaters in the cafe garden. During busy periods we are unable to accommodate buggies inside the cafe.
Cyclists - Cyclists are most welcome and can park their bikes in our garden.
Smokers - Please note that cafe and back garden is a no smoking zone. We do however have a separate, designated smoking area with seating in our side garden.
