“Quick Snack on a Sunday ;) Wasn't disappointed”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

We arrived just before 3 last Sunday - we realised it was closing at 3 but the lady didn't turn us away. Which was appreciated after a long drive and a hectic weekend. We had the lentil soup (lovely) then some homemade scones and tea :)
Staff nice and gave us some direction before we left ;)
My girlfriend took a piece of cake away ( v.nice ) and has told me we will be returning! Of course I'm more than happy to return ;)

“Good, apart from a service off day”
Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

We were ignored when we first went in. We found a table and waited, and were still ignored. We eventually assumed that we should go to the counter. My wife did so, but was told in a slightly shirty fashion to wait for service at the table! We felt quite uncomfortable.

When the service came (soon after that) it was good, and so was the food. However, the lady behind the counter continued to ignore people coming in. We watched while two ladies stood waiting near the counter while the person behind it shuffled some cakes around, ignoring them completely. There were no other customers waiting. If she failed to see them, it could only because she wasn't paying attention - they were right in front of her. The ladies walked out, clearly very annoyed. There were several members of staff around, but it seemed that nobody was looking out for customers, welcoming them, and making sure they stayed.

From other comments here, this must have been an off day. I hope the management tighten up on this really important aspect of customer service. Their location, food and pricing are great, but on this lunchtime at least, front of house was badly lacking.

“Beats the local chains.”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

The missus and I popped in here for a quick brunch. There were excellent fresh baguettes (steak and onion with mushrooms and egg and cress) and a decently strong Americano coffee. The souplooked good too - but that was the table next door! Quick, friendly competent service. Clean loos and a far from unreasonable bill at the end. Will definitely go again.
