We visited here for the café so didn't see it in all its glory. I'm sure if there was a band playing this would be a great place to sit with an ice cream.

I have been going here since I have been a little kid and now me and my partner go here a lot. This area is so relaxing and enjoyable and they also serve the best ice cream with lots of lovely flavours.
