Called in on a Sunday morning, apparently they are open 8am-8pm which is good. The place was quite busy but the service was fast, friendly and efficient. The coffee was good: tasty and quite strong but not bitter. The cooked breakfast was tasty enough but a little greasy and let down by the (apparently) timed mushrooms. Overall pretty good.

Went there for breakfast once and had scrambled eggs with toast and split some scones with a friend. Scones were not the usual thick and fluffy, there were kinda flat, but were still delicious in their own way, lathered with butter and still goes great with a cup of tea.

Skip the chain restaurants and check out this great independent spot. They serve breakfasts and afternoon teas - I've only ever had breakfast here a few times. It's great - good value for money and always busy. The local hotel concierges recommend it with good reason.

Coming back from all day meetings, it was a wonderful relaxing moment to walk in this cosy teashop where I was served a lovely High Tea. They also serve breakfast, English style. Many different types of tea and wonderfully homebaked sweets of all sorts.
