I'm so grateful to the staff at Kennys music next door to this place for recommending it - I would never have tried it otherwise but I definitely will be back! We had a mug of spicy vegetable soup and a round of sandwiches each, the soup was delicious and hearty and the sandwiches had loads of filling. The great... More

A big group of us spent a brilliant afternoon here for a baby shower. We had the place to ourselves on Sunday afternoon. When arranging the event the team were helpful, friendly and full of suggestions. We were allowed to decorate the place and they also set the tables up beautifully for us. I enjoyed popping in, strictly for market... More

A strange place, secondhand bookshop come teashop (mostly snacky / light lunch food), but a decent place to spend an hour or two. We were here for lunch. The food was fine and the service good so I would have no problem in recommending it for a light lunch.

I had the veggie platter today, was a bit nervous at first as it's a little outside of my usual baked potato comfort zone but try it I did and it blew my tights off! Lots of flavour and little bits and bobs to dip and dunk and nibble- loved it. I then loosened my belt and had a big... More

Had lunch while Christmas shopping. It was great to sit in here with the family having a quiet lunchtime bite to eat while the shopping madness was going on. Food all freshly prepared and it was lovely. Good friendly service too. Enjoyed browsing the books as well, We'll be back! :)

My sister and I went here for a cuppa. On enquiring about gluten free food the waitress informed us that every filling in the sandwiches are available on gluten free bread too. My sister nearly always has to settle for a baked potato so was happy that she could get a sandwich. Since I hadn't had breakfast I opted for... More
