Lunch was excellent with food well presented and of a high standard, the portions are very adequate indeed. The prices are fair and the staff friendly and helpful. There is plenty of seating on two floors and the decoration is modern, tasteful and very clean.

Food is really good, coffee around average, but the prices are extortionate! We had 2 sandwiches, 2 cakes and 2 cups of coffee, and it came to over £30, which is ridiculous!

Just as expected, from the reviews on here, simply perfect. Sometimes I can be a bit sceptical choosing a place by it's reviews. However, it being 2nd best in the region says a lot. All I'll say is, it deserves to be at the place...More
