The place was recommended by staff at the GVI Oncology around the corner. Delicious Full English Breakfast prepared to order. Very friendly and attentive staff. I suspect they will attract even more custom if they provide WI-FI to customers.

I planned my birthday party here. All arrangemenys were done over e-mail. Renate was always prompt and professional in responding. The venue was perfect! It looked amazing. Staff were friendly as always. Food excellent. Don't look further for a special event or just a quick lunch!

Always busy place with locals for a quick coffee and something light to eat. Ideal for a quick meeting ir business lunch. Frequented by travels. Garden at the back gives tranquillity if you just want to sit and relax. Food tasty and friendly service
