“Shocking service.”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

On arrival our waitress looked at us like we were from Mars when we asked for a table and she then said "there are tables over there". It was very difficult to get her attention to order and we waited ages for food. When the food eventually did arrive, our waitress bought 3 meals instead of 4 and seemed to have forgotten about the other. When reminded 10 minutes later, she bought the food without even the slightest apology. The food wasn't bad but it wasn't good. It was definitely not worth the nightmare waitress.

“Worst Service Ever!!!”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Was there for breakfast this morning, received my cappucino while waiting for a friend. Friend arrived ordered another 2 cappucinos. Then waited over 1 hour, never asked for refill or another drink, never asked to order food. We tried repeatedly to get anyone's attention...nothing. Then finally waited over 15 mins for the bill, and then after another 10 minutes of not being able to pay I eventually went inside to pay. Terrible terrible service. Would never suggest the place to anyone!!!

“Treats to die for”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Wonderful homemade sweet treats and small meals from decadent to prudent. The health breakfast is huge and delicious; the light meals are fresh and imaginative.

“Private event”
Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

Good service, friendly staff and well prepared food. Nice outside area. Enjoyable venue certainly for a private party. Very hot but related to the weather as it is 30 ○ Celsius! !

“Good food but service needs a rethink.”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

Nice setting of a converted house into a restaurant with a lovely garden. I have been there twice - the first time we sat inside and the service and food was very good - also lovely decor inside. The second time I went with my friends to celebrate one of their Birthdays and we sat outside. Unfortunately the service was very bad - the waiters could not cope with the demands and arrivals of the customers. We were very disappointed as service plays a large part of a good restaurant experience. Having said that, they make the best nougat milkshake - simply to die for! The food was well presented and very tasty. There are one or two outdoor tables that are not covered with an umbrella to give shade - the sun gets too hot, so for summer it would be great if they could solve this problem!
