Popped in for a couple of hot chocolates and cake. Chocolates were luke warm. My pain au chocolat was OK. Hubby's cake was good. I hated the overbearing "cleaner" who whisked our plates away when we were still chewing our food and then wiped our...More

We live across the road and fancied a Sunday afternoon cream tea. We were served promptly but while waiting I noticed how grubby the floor and tables appeared. We could hardly hear each other over the clatter of plates, unnecessary music and generally poor acoustics....More

Wanted a quick bite after the Breughel exhibition. Steak pie and quiche was very nice. Only quibble was top of the pie was ever so slightly overdone but nothing​ to spoil the meal. I think i had a peroni as well.
