To be honest nothing special. Had decent cup of coffee and lemon poppy seed cake. Friends had tea and scones felt the butter and jam potions a bit megre, making the eating of them rather dry. Nice decor thou and very clean. Nice cake selection. Busy and lively.

The soup here is always delicious. Ir gets very busy so worth arriving early or booking to make sure you don't have to wait for a table.

We have had a number of enjoyable lunches at Johnston's over the years. Today was no exception. There is an extensive menu at reasonable prices.
