Four of us came here for lunch before visiting the Coffin Museum (nearby). It was easy to park in the square outside (£1-80 for two hours). We had a variety of the lunchtime "snacks" and were very satisfied with the quality, quantity and price. It...More

We were here for lunch and my panini and chips was great. Slightly pricey for lunch, but I was content with this in St. Paul’s square. The staff were fabulous. Attentive and friendly. My only gripe was the drinks. I ordered a coke or a...More
