Had the all day brunch in the early evening. We were seated quickly and the food arrived promptly. Also, the portion size was generous and genuinely delicious! I had the Eggs Benedict and would definitely recommend!

Called in due to enjoying smoked salmon and eggs here previously. Coffee was good - but service and food disappointing for the money. A better option was Muriels - a couple of doors away.

This will be a short review as we had such a great afternoon tea with superb service. 6 fussy pensioners and the lady who served as downstairs could not have been more helpful. Great value. Thanks

Lovely coffee and cakes. However downstairs toilets are grubby and could do with attention. No excuses when they are charging premium prices!
