“Sweet coffee shop”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

Such a nice little café/coffee shop in a lovely location. My partner said the Hot chocolate ( which was in a nice quirky cup ) was the best she had had. Coffee was good too.
Worth stopping here for a coffee and the staff were very pleasant. Nice view over the weir.

“Not customer focused”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

Very short review poor customer service, as soon as we entered we were given a menu, excellent good start and told we could sit anywhere, so we did we sat and waited, waited and sat, even more sitting and waiting, eventually we left unserved, it was not busy so goodness knows how they will cope in the summer. Poor service

“Cosy for a coffee”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Popped in on a cold March afternoon. Lovely location by the bridge, and friendly quick service. Didn't try the food, only drinks but good value for what we had. Even after closing time we were able to sit and chat.

“Nice location, slow service, average food”
Reviewed 19 March 2014 via mobile

The place is really great located - just ideal place for having a coffee before pick up the car from a car park. You entering old historical bridge building and have a view to the river and small waterfalls. Then You have to wait about 20 min for average coffee and average cake. Then another 15 min for a bill. No one will come to take the money and give You the rest so You have to put exact amount of money and just leave the place - You should not give any tip for such service. Although the girl was very nice but without any help from the guys being busy with "more important" things.

“Quirky little eaterie with great character”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

This is a tiny little place next to the river. So small we were asked to wait outside - good job it was sunny!
Tables were a little cramped but the service is speedy. Most of the food involved bread and we opted for the fish finger sandwich. The fresh Cornish Haddock large fish finger, tartare sauce, wedges and salad were fresh and tasty but the ciabatta bread monopolised the plate and I left it as did my husband and the two people sitting opposite us. The size of the bread could definitely be reduced and it would not distract from the meal.
Drinks were expensive but the apple juice was very nice and husband enjoyed his Sticky toffee pudding.
We will definitely be back.
