We go in regularly for coffee and a scone and have seen some changes there over the last few years. The last change included some steel frames in the seating area which serve no purpose, do not add anything to the ambience and are actually...More

Me and my husband stopped here to have a light lunch but there was very little to offer except a cold pasta/pesto salad and a small number of baguettes and sandwiches. We ordered 2 cream teas but they refused to serve us 2, saying that...More

Good to see JL have taken notice of customer complaints. Cakes were uncovered, but now are covered. Delicious too. Loved my cappuccino too.

Hi, Unfortunately I won't ever go there again to find out. It is an awful, very unhygienic place now, so don't waste your time and money. Sorry.
