Popped in for coffee and cake before going to the theatre. Had an amazing chocolate Oreo cake, wanted to stay for lunch too. Really nice place, is bigger and more impressive than it looks from the outside. We will be returning there for lunch soon

Huge portions of very filling stews, casseroles, pies (potato/pastry topped). Great baked goods too: fruit slices, flapjacks, cakes, buns. Quirky decor. Everyone welcome. Great lunch for hungry folk who like home-style food without meat. You don't miss it, the sign of a good veggie dish.
