We were staying near this hotel and noticed the lovely array of home cooked individual pies in the window, so stepped in on the second day of our trip. Good portions, fresh food, excellent variety, nice arrangement of seating, drinks cabinet in a weird place,...More

This restaurant appears to hold itself in pretty high esteem but the reality is a bit more patchy. The food is reliably good(ish) and it is nice for breakfast but when there are hiccoughs, such as cold eggs, the staff are not terribly helpful and...More

My most recent experience of this venue (May 2011) was mixed. The staff were lovely, the coffee very good BUT the eggs Benedict was disappointing, i.e. cold muffin; thin, split hollondaise and dry ham (although lovely egg- perfectly cooked - so it shows they know...More

More for feedback really What a dreadful and disappointing experience. We were taking a monthly pilgrimage to Harrys nearby - but changed our minds - considering your attractive premises. The menu was certainly basic, but charging top rate for mediocre food. I ordered the burger,...More

Made the social faux pas of the century by asking them for hot cross buns on Easter Good Friday. No, they don't. And if you ask, be prepared to be treated like a rancid homeless person. The staff were arrogant, offensive, and had completely forgotten...More
