We went there for a family afternoon tea. Whilst there was nothing remarkable about the food it was pleasant and well presented and it's an ideal place to stop off for a break and to relax being so near all the places of interest

Not the cheapest, but the food is well presented and fair value. The courtyard is sheltered, with table heaters available. A useful bolt-hole for us persecuted smokers!

Cosy up in our recently refurbished cafe or wrap up and sit outside in our heated courtyard. Quietly situated a stone's throw from Bath Abbey, (just off Abbey Green -side entrance to Marks & Spencer). We pride ourselves with our warm and friendly service and delicious homemade food. We offer breakfasts, lunches and specialise in sweet treats such as homemade cakes and cream teas. We have a wide range of teas and coffees as well as speciality hot drinks and we're licenced to serve alcohol. We will welcome you with A BIG SMILE!
