A pleasant place to sit and eat. The sandwich came with chips and salad. Nice coffee. Good furnishings. Not much else to say but.

Called at lunchtime. Lovely interior with real fire. Food bland and disappointing. Soup bland and Victoria sandwich cake tasteless and didn't seem very fresh. Coffee about which there was a lot written was not hot. Sorry, but raise the bar.
