We placed our order at 12.50 and were told that there was a 20 - 30 minute wait. We were still waiting 50 minutes later. The food when it came was very good, we ordered from the bar menu, but we had to rush it down, so that spoiled it a bit. The waitress was very apologetic and offered us drinks on the house, saying that they only has a very small kitchen, but we had no time to accept.
So, a nice place to eat if you have a lot of time on your hands, but not if you are in a hurry.

Birthday coffee with a few friends. Lovely tasting coffee. Quick service, polite staff. Comfy seating. Cakes were very tasty and they have a rewards scheme. Didn't try meal menus but other people's meals looked good

I've the food here especially the tapas style menu. Lovely outside seating area and staff very nice. They don't get 5 stars for my last visit purely as they let a very self important man blatantly jump in front of me at the bar. Shame.
