Visited Brysons for coffee and a cake. Chose carrot cake and lemon cake. Both were very poor, dry and disappointing.

Evening Debra, I'm really sorry to hear this. Do you recall how much you paid so I can follow it up with the coffee bar staff? Am I correct in assuming you were at Keswick? Look forward to hearing from you kind regards... More
