we enjoyed a super lunch. One had a great quiche ( very generous portion) and the other, pulled beef with salad. Delightful staff and a great place to sit in the atrium especially when sun shining. They also make a lovely cappuccino.

Spent a lovely afternoon in brilliant sunshine having cakes and teas in the rear garden. Cannot recommend it too highly. Staff charming and prices very reasonably.
