“Dated and disinterested”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Just popped in for coffee on a very wet day.
Very dated offers on the menu and disinterested service. The whole place needs a good clean and fresh lick of paint. Wouldn't go back.

“Don't bother - they didn't!”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

Went here for a drink mid afternoon. When you read the menu and printed in red it states "We don't provide tap water," it can be off putting. However, when the waitress came to serve us, she reiterated the tone - she did the basics but no more. Granted we only wanted two filter coffees and a diet coke (£1.80 for less than half a pint, petrol would have been cheaper). This was indicative of the service, so much so, when we met a group of walkers looking for somewhere to have a drink we told them not to go there!

Wonder why they are not listed under the food category?
