Went for coffee and cake, Saturday afternoon. Service was uncomfortable and sullen from the old bloke and vacant looking young people. Ordered apple pie. It was not a pie. Was a small soggy slice of sludge with ice cream on it. Pies are made with pastry aren't they. Not the case here, £4 though. Saw better efforts at school. Coffee... More

The tacky decor was dirty and dated, the service was slow and rude and the food and drink poor. The scone I had was served cold with squirty cream and cheap plastic pots of tasteless jam, and was also pretty expensive. amazing that it's still open. Avoid.

Popped into this place for a coffee but after seeing the menu and food I decided to order a bit more. Looks like a small coffee shop from the front but opens up as you go past the bar. The service was helpful and the food was very fresh. Will be returning the next time I am in the area.

Came across this lovely place on a trip out from Warrington with my husband. Had a fantastic lunch. Although we were only popping in for a coffee. Very relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Will definitely be back again

Popped in on the off chance today and we were all very happy with the service and food. Lovely atmosphere and the staff couldn't have been helpful... Very good and we will be back. Thank you!

Food was really poor. 'Crispy squid' with garlic Mayo was neither crispy or cooked or with garlic mayo. Sent it back to the kitchen and had ribs in tangy sauce. The sauce tasted like uncooked spices and was horrible. The mulled wine was terrible too. It taste like lemon lemsip. Very strange for a mulled wine.
