Given its location this place should be superb . I have used it a couple of times but find the freshness of the bread to be a bit hit and miss .... When fresh the sandwiches are great .... When it's not fresh I would recommend greggs !

Nice little coffee shop, decor attractive, quite cramped. Called in for lunch, had a look at the menu...sandwich, baguette, toastie, wrap.....and that's it. Thought I must have missed a bit of menu or a specials board that would have soup or a jacket spud, usual cafe fodder, so asked at the counter. Not very friendly staff member in formed me... More

Three of us have been today for coffee. Ordered and paid and waited at least 15 mins for 3 coffees. 4 members of staff and only 1 seemed to be working as the other 3 enjoying a good chat. Got very sick of waiting but once the coffees arrived it was delicious.

Lovely food and drinks, space limited especially with buggies or children so can get cramped. Ideal when quieter but it is popular so these times are rare.

Food is average but it is a nice place and the service is good. Probably the desserts are better than the lunches.

Throwing Buns staff are friendly, helpful and hardworking. Cappucino decaf is served, a nice treat for an afternoon break. And check out the Carrot cake, too!

I called here some months ago and there was a tempting display of food, but when I visited in March 2014 there was very little on offer at lunchtime. There was no menu on display; the disabled lift which allows you to descend was switched off, so we had to negotiate the stairs to find the café occupied by the... More

On entering Buns... the Saturday girls were too busy gossiping to acknowledge new customers. Table was covered with crumbs. Out of five quiches on the menu only one (and literally just one solitary) quiche was available at 1pm on a Saturday lunchtime. Asked for it to be heated, but it was served cold in the middle. Quiche itself was highlight... More
