Staying at the Strand Palace Hotel around the corner. 36£ vs £25 seemed like a good choice, and it was. Food was good if not brilliant, toast slightly over, no butter. Service was a little long. Interesting interior and tea pots !

Not eaten at this chain before but pleasantly surprised. They've worked hard on the look/feel in the place and its fitted out to have a slightly rough, rustic industrial café feel. I liked it as you could see the design effort that had gone in....More

Hi Mary. I am an Australian who was on holiday when I went there. I have never heard of ''Taste'' card. I always use cash or AMEX when I go to UK. Best shot would be to ring. They are on the web!. Cheers Williamb Australia
