This cafe is terrible. You have to walk through the sweet shop which looks like an abandoned dirty spare room, in order to go upstairs to a scruffy and dirty little room. The cutlery is odd, the tea pot was broken. The food was clearly...More

Went here for lunch and as others have said, the lack of cleanliness is its biggest negative. The food was average, although one guest's soup was declared as very good. With just a good clean and a little more effort this place could be a...More

Just had to walk out of this place, sat for 5 minutes without being acknowledged or even offered a menu which given that it wasn't that busy was surprising. Worst part was the toilets, my wife paid a visit and immediately wanted to leave -...More
