Prices are a rip off over 6 pounds for a sandwich only! Spent over 20 pounds on two sandwiches and a small milkshake each! And they messed up my order then told me I was in the wrong! Before getting the manager to apologise for their mistake not visiting again!

Pancakes were nice, had better both there and elsewhere so obviously inconsistent. Service was good if rather slow on a quiet day.

Don't underdstand the bad ratings, the charme of this place is comparable with american dinners (in real-life, not in movies) and the food was reasonably good. Had an omelette which was good but it's not actually great cuisine. And a lazy millionaire's cake, loved that.

The staff were fine and the place was clean and tidy. However, the coffee was not very nice and the quality of the food was below average. Wont be going there again.

Waited half an hour only to find our food order hadn't been put through, so had to leave. Only had drinks, although at least they gave us them for free since we went away hungry.
