I had coffee here yesterday. It's called something else now, but still very much the same as in the past. Handy for visitors to the museum. Coffee was good, service efficient, price average.

After nearly 3 hours of walking round the museum, the cafe was a great place to enjoy a cup of tea and a scone! Perfect to reflect on all the amazing things we had seen.

Had a coffee and a scone here on a fairly quiet Sunday dinner time. Service was pleasant enough, good quality and value for money. No complaints.

I was in here for coffee last week, and was told it's now been taken over, and no longer has the same name. It seemed pretty much as before though.

Have been here for lunch today after visiting the museum (which incidentally is great). Have to express my extreme disappointment in the kids meal which I suggest should be called 'toddlers meal'. We ordered sausage and chips, no beans. The meal cost £4.95 and actually...More

I visited this place i can honestly say that the food was average although some members of staff were very rude and unprofessional towards eachother. Our waitress was rude and needs to crack a smile. It needs updating to very old fashioned. I will not...More
