Small portions, an hours wait between servings, unremarkable food, wedged in a table sharing plates with strangers. Expensive drinks. Came out still hungry and skint. A rubbish night, you would be better off at the local chippy.

Really nice brunch. Good strong coffee, enjoyable main dishes and excellent selection of desserts. I recommend the custard tarts :-) Will be back!

I came here with my wife a couple of Sundays ago. I had the step sister - sweet potato, courgette and feta fritters, avocado and spinach, kale, turmeric yoghurt & a poached egg. All delicious although the fritters were a bit bland and everything was...More

Just go with the flow and stick it out in the queue. Maybe have a coffee to take your mind off the waiting because this isn’t too big a place. With intriguing drinks like a Sugar Daddy and old school music in the background, this...More

This place was recommended by a friend and it was just great. The food is brilliant and they have wonderful Earl Grey tea. Very popular so I shall look for a quieter time to come.
