My sister treated me to lunch here the other week for my birthday. It was a Saturday and busy. We were seated in the basement (really not as nice as ground level) and had to wait an inordinate period of time for any kind of service - menus, ordering drinks, ordering food, receiving both drinks and food, etc! We had... More

Retro/vintage style inside, absolutely gorgeous food! Visited with my boyfriend for lunch and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Staff were lovely and attentive. Can get busy, so maybe worth booking for larger parties! Oh, and they do gluten free! :-)

A lovely place to go for loose leaf teas, cakes, afternoon tea and in the evening they do desserts and vintage cocktails! Haven't given excellent because I don't personally think the cakes are amazing - could be better quality - and staff don't always seem that on the ball - but I still like going here. Lovely vintage decor and... More

Like many reviewers on here I have visited several times and am sad to say that 35% of the time service and quality is fantastic but for the remainder of the time it really doesnt hit the mark. My last 5 visits, at various times of the day really have fallen short of the mark. The most recent visit was... More

I've wanted to visit Sugar Junction for a long time now, but it's usually so busy I've struggled to get a table! Me and my sister managed to grab a table early lunchtime last week, and it was certainly worth the wait! Absolutely gorgeous lunch of poached eggs, asparagus and hollandaise sauce all washed down with a delicious pot of... More
