My friends and I regularly stopped here for brunch at the weekends. The queue is often long at the weekend and it's not possible to book a table in advance so unfortunately you just have to get here and wait. The wait can often be...More

Been twice recently and enjoyed very much. Saturday morning was so busy and had a wait of around 20 minutes but very efficient system so didn't mind really. Monday morning still busy but no wait. Huge choice, great service and unlimited coffee. Would definitely recommend!

I'd disagree with the previous comment about the quality I've only been twice as I don't live in the area if I did I would be there more often.
