An unexpected find, well worth a visit. They have a active bakery on the premises that make brilliant pies.

Great service and surroundings and really good food. I had a delicious chicken and avocado salad which was really nicely presented and was excellent value for money. Unfortunately I was too full after it to experience the gorgeous-looking pastries!
