It's was very welcoming in here, the staff couldn't be more helpful, came here for bistro night and wasn't impressed with the food for what we payed. It was very average.

We came here for breakfast and really enjoyed it. We both had full English, complete with tea, toast and orange juice. The food was delicious and the service was as quick and friendly as usual. This establishment is highly recommended, whether it is for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and cake or indeed just ice cream!

From J Boy of Derby This is a fantastic cafe in a beautiful park. The ham rolls are beautiful they certainly give a large amount of ham in the roll. Gets very busy especially summer weekends when the band is playing, but I have always found the service to be quick and efficient. Plenty of tables and chairs outside, this... More
