In a world of increasing globalization, uniform culture and expresso bar chains, the Cloisters is a refreshing breath of fresh air. In place of any 'off the peg' decor and copy cat furnishings is a really interesting eclectic collection of old cigarette cards, postcards, photographs, china and artefacts. I only had time for a coffee and a chocolate brownie (which was delicious and baked on the premises apparently) but I will certainly be returning to try out their lunch time menu. There was a really nice buzz to the place and the staff were very attentive and efficient. With fresh flowers on every table and sweet smelling hyacinths at the top of the stairs I really felt the owners had put a lot of thought into making the Cloisters somewhere special to visit. Oh.. and if that wasn't enough, I came out from the cafe, crossed the road, lent over the little bridge and saw some brown trout in the river and a little egret! Lovely!
