Had piping hot chocolate and delicious biscuits; just the job as it had started to rain. Great service; very friendly. Loved the decor; very peaceful and calming. Would definitely visit again when in the area. Thank you. 😊

Slow service, acted like we were a nuisance and couldn't care less about their customers. Not sure if I caught them on a bad day but I definitely recommend looking elsewhere...

Popped in here for a coffee on a wet and miserable day. Cheered up by very pleasant young man who served us with great coffee and although it was near closing time, did not rush us. Thank you.

Popped in for coffee on a wet miserable day. Coffee was great, friendly staff. Looked very clean and sorry I didn't have more time to sample the food.
