I love this place and would always recommend this place. We visited often and it really is lovely. The savoury dishes are perfect and the desserts even better. Both me and my boyfriend love going here. Only gave 4 stars though because sometimes the service is slow and I had a cold meal once which we had to ask to... More

We visited this restaurant with friends up from London. We were served by Amy who actually remembered us from almost a year before. The food was good and our waiting time was fine. Amy was lovely , made us laugh and we all came away having thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. All the staff we had contact with were helpful and... More

I brought friends here for breakfast with a little trepidation having read some of the TripAdvisor reviews which were not overly great, I certainly wasn't sure what to expect. On arrival we were quickly greeted and had a table pointed out to us having been given menus. We had a little wait until our order for breakfast was taken but... More

Noticed others who were in after us receiving there food so we decided to ask if ours would be long as we had been... More

went in to this place for a quick snack at lunchtime. Unfortunately it was not as quick as we would have liked. The place was quite busy, and the service was rather slow. We only ordered soup and sandwiches but had to wait rather a long time for them. The people on the next table seemed to be having the... More

Very disappointed with food, it was simply awful. Staff were busy and tried to be helpful but the place is one mile long so everything takes forever. Simple lunch wrap took half an hour and was not worth waiting. "Milk shakes" were more like water with some milk froth.

Menu and waitress untruthful about paninis which allegedly contain too much filling to close. The milkshakes (£3 for a terrible, poorly flavoured chocolate orange milkshake) were small, the brie and bacon baguette consisted of one piece of bacon and and 2 pieces of brie and cost £7.50 (enjoyed a two-course meal at a very highly rated restaurant for the same...
