Excellent quality and good value. Fresh salad; jacket potato cooked just right; avocado was perfectly ripe (with superb salmon). Proper tea (ie leaves not bags), stylish china, great ambience. Friendly attentive staff - hardly any wait for food to appear etc.

Been a few times. Lovely atmosphere. Nice menu. Outdoor seating. Great tea selection. Feels a bit hectic paying where the staff need to get through to the kitchen though.
