Such a choice of hot chocolate, there must have been at least 15 plus! A great place to visit on a cold afternoon like it was today. Not only did the drink warm us up, so did the friendly welcome we received from the staff

I had a very good late morning coffee with a friend. The place is casual and pleasant. It was quite busy when we got there, but we were seated quickly. The coffee was very good and the cakes also. The service was good and quick.

Always busy, with a welcoming atmosphere. No nonsense food - served really nicely. Good selection of sandwiches and drinks - and a cheeky prosecco is available as they are licensed. Lovely river views.

I stopped at this cafe midweek, late morning, for a cup of tea and slice of pecan pie. The cafe has an interesting decor, predominantly green with plenty of pictures of mostly modern art on the walls. It also has an enviable position as it...More
