I had the most delicious Gordon Bennett today the The Room At The Top in Victoria Mill. As an alternative it was filled with salmon instead of the usual smoked haddock. This made for a pleasant change. The atmosphere was relaxing and with the music playing gently in the back ground you could still have a decent conversation. The news... More

I hope that the owners keep up the standard of caring for ingredients, with friendly service at a reasonable price. Have eaten there many times, and love the all-day breakfast, and in particular the Arnold Bennett omelette, which I think is world-class.

Good quality food, freshly cooked to order, including extensive availability of gluten free food. Clean tables, friendly staff, plus LOADS of fabulous, quirky Victorian jewellery,... More
