This is always a good stop for a quick cup of tea or coffee and a bun. Clean with toilets close by. Decor is just ordinary ,canteen type decor and tables and chairs. Hot food is served at reasonable prices.

Located in Magdalen street is Debenhams department store. Department store with many outlets that sells clothing and furniture, and all the usual typical items in a large store. Clean and fresh.
