Breakfast is a leisurely affair if you want it to be………………


I aim to provide you with a quality breakfast using the freshest of local ingredients where they are available. Everyone is different and I like to cater breakfast to reflect everyones individual requirements, vegetarian, gluten free and vegan options are a normal part of the extensive menu. The bread is baked daily using freshly ground spelt.
