I had a latte so can't answer that one. However, the cheese and ham sandwich (sourdough bread) was excellent. Worth a visit. They'll lend you a lock.

Its run by James Connolly and Stacey Jarvis (BRAT's). Its definitely worth a visit. They are slightly more "premium" than some of the cafe stops we take (I don't know if Paul Johnson would approve of a £5 sandwich) ;-)

They are doing quite a lot of cycle related activities, and regularly get visits from some of the smaller clubs nearby. They also have a couple of club rides on Thursday and Sunday (both ~2hrs). They have a mechanic on site as well too.

Toby Draper is the man to talk to, as I know he pops in there fairly regularly.

I can only vouch for the espresso and cakes being very good. They've recently improved the bike stands (which are always in view). Worth calling in if you're passing through KH but can get busy on a Saturday afternoon.
