Visited for a quick late lunch. Warm salad was delicious, very flavoursome. Fiance was very happy with his huge sandwich. Lots of treats on offer in the cabinet so looking forward to returning to try those! Staff friendly.

We came here on may day for some lunch, a warm greeting as soon as we entered from a member of staff. Food and coffee was superb - I had the feta tartlet, it was delicious! Service good, we'll be back again soon :)
