“Thank you all so much for your hard work on the 4th. Everything went really well. The afternoon tea and buffet were both gorgeous. A particular favourite of everyone were the gorgeous scones and the chocolate cake! Yourself and your staff were lovely and nothing was to much trouble. Your service was exactly what we wanted for our wedding and the afternoon tea just set the mood perfectly.”

Our Favourites

Here’s a few of our favourite items on the menu to get you going…

Full English Breakfast

Not too big and not too small – the perfect full breakfast to start the day. Our Full English Breakfast also includes hash brown, black pudding and tea or coffee. Great as a morning after boost (as proven by many!).

Vegetarian and Gluten Free options also available.

Toasted Brie, Bacon & Cranberry Sandwich

Always popular at lunch time, this full sandwich is a heartwarming hit with locals – brie, bacon and cranberry on white or granary bread, nicely toasted on our panini press.


Paninis are the ultimate finger food – easy to eat as a snack and filling enough to have for your lunch (or any time you like of course!).

We have a full range to choose from and two popular ones are Bacon, Brie & Cranberry (v) and our Pepperoni & Cheese.


A traditional Italian cappuccino just like it’s made in Italy. A single or double espresso shot topped with equal parts steamed and foamed milk which means you quickly reach the coffee. Finished with a layer of silky foam on top.

The foam that tops a cappuccino acts as a natural insulator, keeping the drink warmer longer. The traditional cappuccino does not have chocolate added on top (however if you would like some, that’s not a problem).

Milkshakes & Smoothies

Choose from an extensive range of Milkshakes which are blended together with your favourite candy bar. We do them thick and if it isn’t thick enough, tell us and we’ll redo it for you.

Our delicious range of Love Struck Smoothies are healthy and made simply with fruit and our special Ginger Cow smoothie juice. Smoothies are not just for summer either – your body benefits from them in the winter also.
