When it first opened this was a good, well run cafe. It has lost its previous high standards. A maddening system where there is one person to take the orders and payments. During the meal we decided on a second cup of coffee but there...More

We felt the lunch was very poor value. My quiche and salad was a small slice of quiche with 4 lettuce leaves. The carrot cake was tasteless. It took an age to get our pot of tea which should have been served with the cake....More

Wanted a quick bite after the Breughel exhibition. Steak pie and quiche was very nice. Only quibble was top of the pie was ever so slightly overdone but nothing​ to spoil the meal. I think i had a peroni as well.

After visiting this truly wonderful museum we went to the cafe for a snack lunch. Goodness, how disappointing. Chaotic and slow service. Unclean crockery. Seats very close together. Grub wasn't brilliant either. My so called Florentine was a squashed flapjack. They must do better.

Stopped in for a cup of tea after visiting the museum; it was around lunch time and there was a steady stream of workers, mums that lunch and visitors like us. Lots of seating, including some comfy sofa's. Order at the counter then it's served...More

Having previously lived in Bath we returned for a visit to one of our favourite cafes for a morning coffee break. No more table service, but no information to let you know to order at the till. Tables all too close together, so it felt...More
