What a wonderful welcoming place. Not in the best of moods I stopped in for a coffee and left with big smile. The staff were welcoming and fun and the food and coffee were amazing. Special shoutout to the manager Jack, with his dry wit that made me miss my family a little less.

Very friendly staff showed us straight to out table and service was very quick. Individual teapots, lovely selection of food on a three tier cake stand - 6 finger sandwiches, 6 mini pastries and 2 very big scones with proper thick cream, jam & butter so plenty for 2 people. Sinatra playing unobtrusively in the background, comfortable big leather seats,... More

Tea actually came with a teabag in a cup opposed to the teapot shown. Young staff with no one appearing to be in charge. Scones were bought in and too sweet as covered in... More
