Decent enough cafe in the centre of Oxford, and fairly spacious, but for us rather too many pies and too little choice, but that may have been a moment un time and I would go again.

The coffees and surroundings are nice but the staff aren't that pleasant. They also try to squish as many people into the tables as possible and it's like if you're not eating you're not welcome.
