Had coffees and cakes in the coffee shop contained within the splendid ironmonger's shop. We found the service to be friendly and attentive. The lattes were good and the cakes delicious. The newly-introduced banoffee pie was scrumptious. Will go back.

Amazing bacon and egg rolls! Free Wifi, friendly and fast staff. Didn´t like the cakes so much - had a very dry muffin! Other than that I enjoy a visit there a lot.
