We visit fairly often - it's a lovely place to go as a couple, or to meet up with friends and family. There are a good range of seating options and table sizes to suit all kinds of visits. It's a lovely relaxed atmosphere, with the familiar 'Lounge' decor. The food is generally pretty good and they have a nice... More

This bar service cafe is really nice for a quick meal or lounging cocktails. The atmosphere was comfy and warm, and the food was yummy! It's also gluten free and vegan friendly. The prices of the food were also very affordable! I would recommend for sure!

This is a great choice to meet up with friends. I have always had a good meal and drinks here. Service is always friendly. There is a good choice of seating and good toilets. A great place to dress up or down from jeans to black dress.

Arranged to meet a friend for coffee, but when we got here she decided she was having breakfast too. I was very jealous of her eggs benedict until I tried my chocolate biscuit cake. So good. And the menu looks very attractive. Nice large space with plenty tables - a nice place to chill and read the paper.

Great branch of the lounges, friendly staff and chilled environment with good inside and outside seating. The hero burger is epic. If you haven't tried the lounge chain I would recommend it!

I like a good burger (who doesn't?) and since my boyfriend is gluten sensitive we were excited to try out the gluten free option here. We both had the lounge burger and wow was the patty not only super dry but it was unseasoned too! No amount of ketchup made a difference. And the house slaw? Really? C'mon now just......no.... More
