Absolutely fantastic afternoon tea which was delicious. I would have liked some additional hot water served with the tea, although didn’t ask, so I’m sure they would have obliged.

We were recommended to visit by friends. Unfortunately on the day we went for coffee and cake our experience was not a good one! Firstly we booked our table online and on arrival were told they had not received our booking. Secondly, we were told it was table service but we waited so long we had to go up to the counter to order. When our coffee and cake finally arrived the older waitress who served us proceeded to spill half the coffee in the saucers and on doing so pointed to the serviettes on the table for us to clear it up! Overall our visit was a little disappointing.

Few points taken off because even though I had booked online; when I arrived there was no table booked. Luckily, it wasn't too busy so no problem. This will not stop me from eating there again and, in fact, we popped in for a nice coffee this morning

We visited your cafe on Christmas Eve. The service was great as usual. We ordered 2 large breakfasts, 1 medium and an Eggs Benedict, also 4 latte’s. The quality of the food was great but unfortunately nothing was hot enough. The eggs Benedict sauce was cold which made everything else on the plate cold and the 3 other breakfasts were very tasty but only Luke warm. The 4 lattes were also only Luke warm and you could drink them down straight away. Having said this, you were accommodating with swapping breakfast items which people didn’t like for something that they did which was very appreciative. It was busy and with being Christmas we didn’t like to complain. I would certainly come again as we had a lovely lunch with you the previous week which was incredible.

Delicious tasty food in a lovely setting. We felt service was a bit random, one minute a very nice chap was trying to do everything, then later about 4 people arrived helping out, were they staff, seemed all a bit odd! Not complaining but it gave an air of a bit of a muddle! Still love the place and will certainly come again

What a lovely place to eat, surrounded by antiques and bric a bac. The service was the best we have had for a long while, a very happy, friendly lady greeted and looked after us. Went on the eat out to help out scheme. We would not be prepared to pay the whole price, as expensive compared to other places,.
