I'm ending up in this Gail's quite a lot - either to get my bread or to have something to eat. The store is rather small and always crowded, but the staff is kind and attentive. The coffee and sandwiches are mouthwatering!

Ordered a Flat white after a long day at work. The coffee arrived quickly but the latte art was nothing like the photos on the website. I think the milk was over-aerated and poured too quickly. On my way out, I mentioned this to the...More

Gail’s is a proper bakery with a huge of bread, cakes, sandwiches and savouries. It’s not a patisserie, but a bakery and in my opinion, all the better for it. While in the area we made a couple of takeaway visits and one brunch visit....More

Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art
from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and
