Just wanted something light. The mushroom soup with Stilton and a gammon and chutney sandwich hit the spot for both of us. Service was quick and pleasant. The mocha was good too.

How disappointing! This desirable location sheltered from traffic and crowded pavements ought to be a magnet for holidaymakers so what’s wrong? The service - perhaps largely provided by students on summer vacation - is unskilled and slow, very slow. The menu which should be designed...More
