Came here for a light but leisurely Sunday lunch. A small restaurant, basic but clean and tidy. The Spanish-style all say breakfast (chorizo avocado and poached eggs) was particularly good.

Visiting England for a weekend trip and was in desperate need of a traditional breakfast. I was not disappointed. The food was cooked perfectly and well presented comprised of quality ingredients. We were offered an array of breads with our breakfast which is a great touch. The coffee was great and all of the servers were very friendly. Everyone seemed to know each other and it added to a really friendly atmosphere early on a Saturday morning in late September.

Had the full English breakfast which was lovely. Poached eggs were spot on and the rosemary bread was really nice. Love coming here for a brekkie treat.

My fave thing here, not sure if it’s on the menu all of the time, is the BLTA sandwich. Avocado seems to be on everything these days but no complaints here, this place is great

Great find tucked away down a small alley.
Very friendly and welcoming staff and made a real effort with our young children.
Recommend the Houllumi Burger with Roast Peppers in a Brioche Bun and the Chilli Con Carne. Generous and tasty servings.
Kids loved their smoothies.
The chocolate cookies were a great addition with coffees.
