A friend and I went in for lunch one rainy day. Only one other table was occupied but by the time we finished a few more tables were full. My friend had a panini and I chose the soup which was lovely. The staff are friendly and the coffee is of good quality too. So far so very good.

At the end of my meal I noticed that my soup and fresh bread had been resting over a previously used napkin (not slightly crumbled - seriously previously used) which turned my stomach. I quietly pointed this out to the server who did not seem phased by this and merely said that she would speak to kitchen staff about this. I would have appreciated a bit more reassurance and a gesture of goodwill, neither of which were on offer.

Lunched here, Superb tasting cup of soup with very flavoursome half sandwich followed by absolutely excellent traybake with tea (coffee is also excellent). More substantial lunches are available. Price was very reasonable.

Only drawback - gets very busy and you might have to wait to get seated.
