A nice little place

First time we have visited this deli today, and what a wonderful little gem. They provide blankets and hot water bottles for those seated outside. We ordered tea and scones (how very English) and very nice they were too. Good service added to the enjoyment.

Loved the selection of both local and imported deli options. Had a lovely lunch with tea and cake too!

We each had a bowl of homemade soup, one tomatoe and basil and the other roast celeriac both were lovely, followed by sandwiches which are enormous and lovely, a nice bottle of wine and they packed up one of their platters for us to take away for our evening meal - won't need much after their soup and sandwiches.

Not many tables and zero degrees outside. But there was something gorgeous about drinking a hot mocca and eating brownie, with blankets on my knees and a hot water bottle. Is always busy, lovely service, nice old building. A good place for a Saturday afternoon people watch.

Came here for breakfast with a friend this morning and it was lovely! Very calm atmosphere, staff were friendly and polite with very quick service considering they had a full house. Very reasonable prices for quality if food and drink, also the tea was made with tea leaves (yes!) which, as a self professed tea-snob, I loved.

I visited here with a friend last week for breakfast, grabbed the last table available so no problem. Great menu selection for both breakfast and lunch. I had the "salmon stack" which included 2 big slices of sourdough toast, vine tomatoes, smoked salmon,2 poached eggs and lots of avocado! Was really impressed with the portion size and tasted amazing too!... More

myself and 2 friends came today for breakfast. The menu was amazing and the food was stunning. My only complaint would be to wait for all people to finish eating before clearing the table as my friend was a slow eater and took a while and she felt a bit pressured so left some in the end.

We have been here a couple of times for lunch and we were never disappointed. The ingredients were fresh and the menu it is various, not boring. The sweets are really good, so you can go also for an afternoon tea.

Popped in for lunch. Interesting and varied choice of food available within a very pleasant atmosphere. The deli itself has a range of cheeses and home made pastries available alongside a range of other interesting foodstuffs and drinks. Find a table, peruse the menus and the boards around the establishment and order at the counter. Attentive and courteous staff. Popular... More
