Wanted a quick bite after the Breughel exhibition. Steak pie and quiche was very nice. Only quibble was top of the pie was ever so slightly overdone but nothing​ to spoil the meal. I think i had a peroni as well.

The cafe is in a great setting, with views of the grounds of the Holburn Museum and into the park. It's nice architecturally too - blending contemporary with the classic building it's a part of. We only had coffees/hot chocolate. Catering seemed absolutely fine -...More

This Café is attached to the Holburn Museum and overlooks a pleasant garden area. I only had a Latte and a piece of Cake so nothing challenging for the staff to deal with. I was offered a menu on entering, chose, ordered and paid at...More

No good for children! We live nearby but first time we'd visited. We ordered two adult lunches and a children's box to share between my 16 month old and his brother. First childs ham sandwich that arrived was on sour dough (too tough and dry...More
