Called in here for a Cherry and Amaretto Sundae for £6.95. I ordered one of these in Germany recently and it had been fantastic so thought I would try the Welsh version. The staff who served me were friendly and pleasant, and service was quick, but I just felt for the amount you get for £6.95 was not good value. Although it tasted great, there was very little ice cream and even less cherry coulis. I came away dissapointed. Not the fault of the staff but whoever sets the prices needs to reconsider.

What can I say....I was served by a lovely young man called Rich who was very polite and nothing was too much hassle for him. The coffee was lovely and the service was amazing. I will definitely be returning soon!!

This place sells hot and cold drinks plus all different sorts of ice cream to eat in or takeaway. There were several kinds of coffee and only one bog standard tea which we prefer. There were quite a few places to sit but these were filled quickly with coach parties coming in all the time.

Called here for coffee - which was great, really good coffee. But the service was slow and the staff miserable. We were basically ignored for the first few minutes by the young lad making the coffee, no more than a few inches from where I was standing waiting to be served - a young girl eventually came over and served me, but no smile of welcome, or apology for the wait.
