We went today for lunch. Overall 5 star experience. Food was amazing and excellent customer service. My coffee was cold as feeding my son and they gave me a new one free of charge! Big thank you.

Surely when getting a pot of tea you would get loose leaf tea and a pot of water, rather than a bland tea bag, for £1.85.
