I went for coffee and cake with a friend here in 2016. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed - no waiters hounding you every five minutes! The coffee was nice and their homemade scones were excellent. The staff were really chilled out and it was a nice place to go for a causal drink.

We stopped in here for an early tea and it was wonderful. Friendly staff and a good atmosphere. Burgers were amazing with a big selection to be had. Kids menu was good with sizeable portions. Would definitely return as it was delicious food in good amounts. We couldn't had fitted in a dessert.
