Service friendly, but slow. Coffee was below par and much better coffee only a short walk away, if you have time.

Went for afternoon tea, was welcomed, served with a smile. Pastries are delicious and freshly made. Reasonably priced. Teenage daughter loves their rolls anytime of the day.

There were five of us for a mid-evening meal so we grazed on tapas. Excellent combinations on the hot and cold tapas platters and very tasty. Good selection of wine.
