I've always walked past this place and wondered what the charm of it was as it's always packed to the rafters. Went for brunch with chums today, and I can honestly say it's the best damn breakfast I've had in yonks. Three of us had the special breakfast which, at £8.50, I thought would be a bit pricey. However, I... More

This is an old fashioned coffee/ tea house that serves wonderful traditional food from all day breakfasts to dainty tea and cake. The variety is superb and the staff in their black and white costumes are attentive and knowledgeable. This is not the for the young seeking modern fast food - that can be found a few yards away in... More

We popped in here for a cup of tea and a bit of cake. It is a little bit of an odd placement in the noisy food court of a shopping center but once inside and in another room it was much quieter and relaxed. There is a good food menu but we just had tea and cake. A very... More

The staff were friendly and welcoming, and happy to answer any questions and make adjustments to orders where possible. There was a good selection of teas, small meals and treats. However there isn't much of a vegan selection, though they don't make any of those claims.

Out shopping with cousins and popped in here for a quick lunch, lovely oasis of calm after the hustle and bustle of the shops. Good, varied menu, I enjoyed a Brie and bacon panini with a banana milkshake and it was excellent. Staff very friendly, polite and efficient and place spotlessly clean. Would definitely recommend.

What a wonderful little place. Staff look like waitresses with white pinnies and hats nothing is too much for them sooo polite. Food is so good and so reasonable. A lovely oasis from a mad food court outside

Been here many a time and never had a bad experience. Must recommend the hot chocolate complete with toasted teacake for brekkies.

Not visited before as the decor has put me off, however you shouldnt let that stop you. Fantastic customer service and great food make this well worth a visit if you fancy something different than the normal chain coffee shop or fast food take away.

We stumbled upon The Nutmeg Tree whilst looking for somewhere to eat. Although it is placed in the corner of a food court, it could not be more different in it's approach to food service. As opposed to quickly cooked food being slung over a counter by a 'fast food' assistant, this gem of a place was staffed by people... More
