Sandwich lunch was excellent, just right, and with tasty crisps and a watercress dressed salad. Anything more would not be necessary. Good coffee, pleasant and quiet atmosphere. Bit strange to have some sort of jazz type singer for background music all the time that the...More

Lovely atmosphere. The tea was tasty with a different selection of sandwiches to the traditional teas I've had i the past. Yummy cakes. The staff were good although could have been a little more attentive.
