We have mentioned a few below that are local to us and given you a handy rating to let you know which are our favourites! Feel free to use the wifi to check trip advisor for other comments. * Welcoming and friendly ** Worth popping your head in if you are about the local area *** Great atmosphere and good selection of food and drink **** Our most visited, that’s got to count for something! *****Taxi!
