Did you know....

From 1885 the site was a pub called 'The Duke's Motto'. The historic pub had the unfortunate nickname of the 'Monkey house' due to the cheap, raw cider it sold and the unsavoury patrons this attracted. We've retained some of the character of the original building, including the brass sign above the cafe which still reads 'The Duke's Motto', however we think you'll find the drinks' menu has now changed for the better!


MUGS & KISSES: 'Hugs & Kisses' tea + any mug + a cute card for £10! Pop in or visit our online shop (worldwide delivery).
