My young adult children found this place first and brought me because they had a (wicked good) gluten free brownie. Great spaces for socializing but also some quiet spots. Nice place to end the evening with a nice coffee or tea and dessert. There is...More

Sorry for the delay in replying. I don't know the exact time they stop serving breakfasts, but we left at about 1pm having just finished our breakfast. So still time to have a lie in!
