Went to this little cafe restaurant for the first time and wasn’t disappointed. Despite the rundown nature of some of the neighbouring properties in the area, this historic building has been carefully restored and the cafe has an excellent industrial themed interior. Whilst the menu...is not the most extensive, what they do offer is excellent quality and brilliant value. The service was both polite and speedy. Will definitely return with friends as it also has an on-site carpark which makes visits easy. Thank you for a lovely lunch.More

I came in for a coffee and a scone to end my lovely day that I’ve just had visiting family in the area and I’m sad to say that I will never be returning. The scone was as hard as a house brick, it’s safe...to say I nearly lost a tooth in eating it! and the coffee wasn’t any better, I don’t think the cup was washed as it had lipstick on it. And as for the staff, there was definitely a lack of communication there. won’t be returning.More

My Mum and I went to visit the Glost house when we first came inside we were greeted my one of the servers who rolled her eyes when we asked to look at both the drinks and food menus. We were then shown to a...table of two, my mum asked if it was possible to sit in one of the other tables with a bench as we wanted to sit with each other. There was only two other tables with people the rest of the cafe was empty the server again rolled her eyes and said that we couldn’t sit there and had to sit in the table we were supposed to sit at. We then walked out as couldn’t believe the rudeness from the staff. We normally avoid the glost house as the staff are normally rude and act as though you are the problem when you ask for anything. Not good hospitality, we went to Costa instead.More

Dine here regularly with my parents and daughter. Lovely place, food is always nice and the staff are friendly. We particularly enjoy the Quasadias and oatcakes. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely place free parking friendly staff. In these times of Covid it’s very difficult to offer accurate reviews when both staff and customers are restricted so much but some places seem to manage so well even with the restrictions and this wa one of them.

Cute cafe/restaurant with a nice selection of breakfast/lunch items (we only had coffee there but the menu looked good). Homemade cakes also looked great, and we would definitely have eaten there if we had more time (just wanted a quick coffee before an appointment). Coffees...were good quality and we enjoyed the ambience of the place. Waitress was also friendly and the covid regulations in place made us feel safe. Would definitely go back.More

Visited with my family on a Saturday afternoon for an afternoon. I have never seen so much food for 6 people. An amazing selection of cakes, all baked on the premises and lovely touches such as a vegetable cous cous that you would not normally...get with an afternoon tea. I thought it was fantastic value and I'm looking forward to visiting again next time I'm in Stoke on Trent.More
