Loved the full English breakfast plus unlimired tea/coffee. We went there for 3 mornings. Staff always friendly even when stressed. I thnk they suffer from unstaffing. But great place.

We had a lovely family lunch on a Saturday. Here is our feedback: - food: we had lasagne with chips which was excellent. We loved the gentle cinnamon flavour - service: with a smile. The staff is very friendly - cost: good value for money.

Having popped up the town in Thame around lunchtime my wife and I decided, on her recommendation, that we should go to the coffee house. I haven't been in here for quite a while, certainly not since the new owners have taken over and although...More
