Popped in on the off chance for a brunch. Quite cosy but welcoming and pleasant staff. Didn't have hot food but coffee and home-made cakes were ideal. Good prices.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.

citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
