This eatery is always busy and deserves to be - great atmosphere and lovely staff. Always made to feel so welcome. Vegetarian breakfast is very good and the team willing to adapt the menu if requested. Cakes are divine - the only problem is choosing what to have :)

Nice choice of food, nice portions, very pleasant staff and very enjoyable. Pleasant buzz to the place but, having said that, elderly parents struggled a bit with hearing aids.

We came here on Sunday and ordered the roast beef. Service was a delight and well paced. The food was really good, bread & butter pudding could have been slightly larger as my dining companion stole some of mine. Lots of unusual soft drinks which were really good. I'll be back 😄

I came here with a friend for a casual tea. I ordered tea and scones. My tea came immediately, and 15 minutes later our waitress comes to tell me they don't have scones. I then instead ordered a croissant. 10 minutes later she comes back with the news they have no more croissants. I then order a muffin, and guess... More
