Visited recently with my mum, a lovely little cafe with a great selection of lunch options including a good range of vegetarian choices. Will definitely be returning soon!

Have been here on many occasions over the past few years. Staff are extremely friendly and attentive. Food is excellent. Often difficult to get a table due to popularity. Highly recommended.

The nearest parking is the multi-story car parks. There is one near the derngate or one behind the college. Both about a 5-10 min walk.
