We ordered two Earl Greys and two cakes. The cakes were quite nice, we had a pot of tea EACH which seemed excessive but I guess that puts up the cafe's profits. What really made the place fall down in my opinion was that not...More

I love the chain and always want to visit but I was very disappointed with the service in April. It took forever to order and a really long time to get out food(over 1.5 hours). Drinks that usually come first arrived after the food and...More

Decided to duck out of the rain and enjoy a hot drink and sandwich. We both ordered Hot chocolates which came luke-warm and two different sandwiches which were fine, I can't rave about them nor find fault. Service slow (despite being one of only 3...More
