What a pie. Beautiful pastry and quality ingredients made for a special meal. The store itself was underwhelming and expected much more given the reviews on here. Portable toilets available in car park but we’re pretty horrible.More

Really good coffee and good pies. And benches outside to sit and eat. Absolutely beautiful items, and some stock we saw no-one else; but quite pricey. Still good stop for re-fueling and spending an enjoyable quarter of an hour or so.
