We’re sorry about the confusion with your tea order. We would love you to give us another chance and suggest perhaps a daytime visit at the weekend when you can also try some of our vegan brunch options.

Great place that puts on great live music and serves top quality food. I had a quail and chorizo salad which was banging! Highly recommend for a fun and chilled night out!
