A beautiful renovation skillfully blends old and new. 2 side walls have been removed to allow an atrium-like seating area. Ample parking on site and free buses nearby.

It’s an eclectic mix of old and new and has some beautiful windows and wall crafts. Just down from the Royal Mint so a good combination.
