My friend took me here the day before I was induced with my baby and we were there with 18month old twins. I found the place to not really be overly child friendly by the atmosphere.

It was a perfect relaxing afternoon and I will definitely be coming back. It is an ideal venue for girly catch ups, families with young children and for a... More

Such a cute little place with lovely food and drink. Well-priced as well! Would highly recommend! We had the toddy, orange juice and paninis. They have gluten free options which is usually so hard to find outside of London.
