Stopped in on a wet, cold day and pleased with the coffee and snacks! Reknowned for their scones, they had sold out already, but this gave us a reason to try the rest of the menu. Toasted panini, pumpkin/carrot soup with toasted cheese scone, sweet...More

Lovely atmosphere with friendly staff. Coffee very good. Had a delicious savoury muffin full of tasty bits. The only let down was the packet of butter where a slice of real butter would have really sealed the experience. Beautiful selection of cabinet food.

We had a mix-up with our order, with one meal not being recorded, and none of the staff noticed, but the mistake was eventually recognised. The 'missing' burger and our other food and drinks were good
