Very nice inside, pleasant ambience all lit up for xmas. Slightly rustic feel. reminded me a bit about The Irby Mill Pub
. Would possibly be a bit cramped if all tables occupied. Would say its better ambience and feel than the café AJs? at Wirral Country Park. Similar to Linghams without the sofa Will be catering for the muddy boot brigade so didn't notice carpets etc.
Now if your looking for value for money--tea and cream cake (Viennese whirl, cream donut, éclair, cream scone, custard slice) £1.40 plus a pasty £1 in the small Papa Joes shop at Brimstage Hall Courtyard. They only have a couple of small tables inside but I normally eat on bench outside. Bon Appetit
