We had a nice lunch here after visiting the abbey. Clean and tidy and pleasant friendly service. Good portions. Let down by smelly toilets - a pity. They need to do something about these. Good job we didn't go there first!

Excited at the prospect of an award winning pasty imagine my disappoint at receiving a soggy excuse for a pasty which had either been microwaved or totally uncooked! Terrible.

It is actually illegal to ask any mother to leave a cafe/ restaurant for breastfeeding her child. You also cannot 'direct' her to a corner. Every mother is protected by LAW , thankfully. You need reporting.
