The delicious smell of home baking is all the proof you need that the Fintons team make their food in-house. Cosy banquette seating, scatter cushions and white-painted ladder chairs make this a comfortable place to stop and gather yourself while friendly staff ferry plates to your table. A bucket of books and toys will absorb little visitors while you eat.
Breakfast on scrambled eggs and rocket on toast or fluffy omelettes, lunch on generous ploughmans, warm quiche or healthy salads. When it comes to the cakes you’ve got a counter full of options, but the cornflake tart comes highly recommended. Gluten-free food is a speciality (a pleasant relief for travellers with dietary restrictions) so there’s a very good range, and specials are inked up on a roll of brown paper on the wall.
