I am absolutely outraged!! I bought a baguette - £5.40 and a bottled drink - £1.50 approx. equalling to around £7. I paid on card, to only find now when checking my bank account I have been charged £11.40!! Ridiculous! This is not acceptable. I...More

Twice I've tried this place but never again, staff distinctly average, prices not too bad but the quality of food is just awful, stone cold beans, dried out mushrooms, ketchup clearly diluted with copious quantities of vinegar, sausage hacked in half before cooking rather than...More

Called in mid morning for bacon sandwich and hot drinks. Place is uninspiring, food was poor quality and very overpriced. Shame as site could have great potential. Lack of any customer focus, would not eat there again.

Called in for coffee and cake whilst waiting for a meeting nearby. Had to pay £3 to park. Coffee was ok, but cake was stale and inedible. Service was sultry and not a pleasantly was heard - not so much as a thank you! Wouldn't...More
