I have been going here since I have been a little kid and now me and my partner go here a lot. This area is so relaxing and enjoyable and they also serve the best ice cream with lots of lovely flavours.

A great spot no matter the weather to have a nice cup of tea! It brings the nostalgic feelings of childhood back and reminds me of when we used to run around and listen to music years ago.
