Gets very busy even in February! Great bacon sandwich cooked to perfection. No lumps of rubber and proper doorstep bread. Recommended. Tea is nice and strong as well. They shout your number out so you can sit down with your drink and keep your ear out for your order! No nonsense food served in a great setting.

Brunels Buttery is a must for everyone in any kind of weather conditions. Grab a delicious egg and bacon sandwich cup of coffee and watch the river life roll by.
