Popped in on a bitterly cold afternoon hoping for a warm drink and a bite to eat. Kitchen was closed, but that’s ok one can still have coffee and a cake. Or at least you would have thought so! Not here. Waited for ages for...More

Went here on a weekday morning for brunch, staff were very friendly and service was quick. The food itself was good and there is a decent selection available.
