We only visit Chesterfield about once every five years so researched this cafe beforehand, I don't think we'd have ever found it otherwise as it's up two flights of stairs which doesn't give a great first impression. It really is worth seeking out, food was excellent, service and value very good. From a purely personal taste point of view the... More

Bit of a climb up the stairs ( I believe they are moving soon) but we were promised it would be worthwile and so it proved. Very friendly, helpful staff and excellent tea and scones. The menu looked very good for lunch etc. - just wish we had been more hungry - recommended.

I have never been to Chesterfield before but was meeting friends for lunch after going to a wedding the day before.
