Handy for anyone at the uni or the hospital, food is pretty nice but subject to good staff being on shift. Worth visiting for a drink and snack if you're in the area.

We always visit this place when we pop into the museum. The menu is great and has a mix of continental choices as well as your usual favourites, there's loads of specials on offer and I would recommend having something off the board. The price...More
