“Interesting”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

They make a very good cup of coffee here and we loved the cartoons. It was very tempting to fill a shopping basket as well

I had the most fantastic sweet potato soup here, followed by some lovely coffee and a scone, the home made cakes are really something

“Lacking in service”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Have eaten here once, had soup which was lovely but the portion would suit a small child and the price does not match this. If adding a slice of bread with your soup there would be an additional charge of 90p. I was ignored at the till when attempting to pay by a man who answered the phone instead of serving me, he continued to take the call which lasted a good 10 minutes, by this time I had eaten my soup and left. I would not return.

Nice for something different but a little expensive. Good variety of food and hamebakes and excellent coffee.
