The restaurant is on the 1st floor, served by a lift, at busy times there is a wait for hot drinks, that means your food is cooling rapidly.

Popped in for a scone and coffee to fill in an hour. Coffee wasn't very hot, cutlery tray was empty and scones were dry. I think probably yesterday's scones as there wasn't much choice and only a couple on the plate. Very very disappointed!More
