The building dates back to the 17th Century and has many historic features that draw customers and is a major interest in the town.

The business sells a wide range of coffees, loose leaf teas and cold drinks and also has an alcohol licence. The menu consists of breakfasts, light lunches and afternoon teas. Sales of homemade cakes and scones are particularly popular with cyclists.

The Cafe has also just undergone a full redecoration of the interior.
