Dear Sipeacock, I am sorry that you were "extremely alarmed" on receiving your breakfast so quickly, it seems that when we do get our service spot on, we shoot ourselves in the foot! I would like to reassure you that we do not have a hot plate to store pre-cooked food, but with our 7 years experience on this site... More

They seated us upstairs in the sofa area, which was enough space for the five of us. We had soups and scones for lunch, which were all nice - the portion of soup was fairly... More

Great coffee shop serving excellent latte with the milk properly textured. Try to time a visit with the regular coffee roasting sign outside - fantastic aroma reminded me of when I was a kid. Brilliant staff always ready to. Enter. Good good too if you're hungry.

visited Mr Miles for the first time with a friend at the weekend. We were seated straight away. We both chose a Cream Tea for £6.95, a little expensive I thought, but was served quickly and was very enjoyable. Lovely Tea room in the middle of town
