Maybe we caught this place on a bad day (toilets out of order...not good in a food outlet) but having ordered it was a while before they came back to say not all items available so I ordered an omelette instead. It didn't arrive until my friends had almost finished their food and when it did partlyinedible...chunk of the omelette... More

Love this place - friendly and attentive service, really delicious food with a regularly changing menu and a relaxed vibe. A welcome and refreshing change from the Bath restaurant chains!

Am not sure I am a fan of the re-design they did a while ago, as to me it has lost some of its rustic charm and the initial customer welcome - but the food is extremely good, they cater for gluten free and also allow dogs in which is brilliant!

We went at lunchtime and ate delicious frittata. They are open in the evening as well. There are tables outside as well as inside, some of them communal. The service is friendly and relaxed, it's not fast food so don't go if you are in a hurry.

However the chicken salad dished up was not forgivable, it had several fragments of chicken bones which thankful we managed to pick out and not choke on!!. We pointed out our concerns to staff who on the face of it where apologetic but... More

Popped in here for brunch as we were staying at the nearby Hilton. Very small informal setting. Really fresh ingredients and very tasty. Great salad, lovely coffee, really nice service too. Perhaps a bit overpriced but we both enjoyed it. I even tried the veggie stuff!!

I went here with 3 of my friends who were visiting from France and after sitting for 40 minutes had left without food being brought to us, or a clean knife and fork provided. Service was appalling as they seemed disinterested in coming to the table at all. Then she twice tried to give us all dirty knifes and forks... More
