Wonderful welcome and quaint tea rooms. Ordered a ploughman’s salad - it was delicious, colourful and plentiful. Service is very friendly and the venue relaxed. Cakes look amazing!! On my wish list for next time.

Great little cafe in the centre of Durham, greeted with a smile, food was delicious. I ordered a panini and chips. The price was very reasonable with the amount which I received. All staff were friendly. Will be making this my new dinner time cafe.

It's easy to miss the entrance to this little gem of a cafe. The food was lovely, the prices very reasonable and the staff were fantastic. Service with a smile and a good amount of choice on the menu. Would definitely come again.
