What a lovely place! They serve proper tea leaves...you can brew it as long as you wish. The ambiance is perfect, lots of people stop by the cafe for a chat and catch up with friends. Food is always good and staff are very friendly.

I just had a really lovely Christmas 3 course lunch. Excellent value, excellent food and really friendly, helpful waitress. Very generous portion sizes and lovely touch with a very festive table (cloth, crackers and Xmas confetti).
