Went a little later than possibly the main rush lunchtime. Although its a small place, there was plenty of room to sit, it was clean, there was still choice of sandwiches and the service was fantastic - friendly & personal.

The Press Room is a really great coffee house - their drink selection is great. You can choose whether your hot chocolate is made with milk, dark or white chocolate, and their coffees are just perfect. I always seem to pull a confused fish like expression whenever I walk in there an look at the menu... I can never decide what to get!

Their tea is cracking too - you get a tea pot with a little hour glass, and they recommend to wait until the sand is in the bottom before you drink, just to make sure it has brewed properly. A little touch which makes your cup of tea that bit more special. The sandwiches and cakes are great too. There is great art on the walls, including pictures drawn by local school children... that stuff is too cute! You can also use their wifi for free too.

The only thing they could improve on is the service - it is not that welcoming, although not at all mediocre by any means!

We went for a drink and were delighted with the choices available. Only two things to criticise: the cookies are too big (not always a bad thing!) and the toilets required a refresh. Otherwise great.

Two friends and I popped in for a post-meal coffee, we had double espressos and a mocha. The staff were friends and the sitting is cosy for catching up. It has a good vibe, with different mixes of clients. We were offered a choice of chocolate for the mocha (milk, dark or white) which made more personalised. The cake selection looked decadent. The staff were friendly and chatty. It would be good to see more gluten-free options, but as we came after lunch, perhaps they had already been sold.

All in in, a lovely place for a relaxed drink with friends and family. Visited Sunday 16/02/2014.
